Tulip creates jobs with £16m plant extension

Tulip has created an additional 145 jobs at its Westerleigh plant following the completion of a £16m expansion at the site. 

The company said the investment had seen the existing abattoir near Bristol, Gloucestershire, become a state-of-the-art facility and one of the most advanced in the UK. It has enabled Tulip to grow both its home market, as well as increasing its capacity to export product around the world, including to the growing Chinese market.

A new retail production facility has also been created in which joints can be cured and produced for the UK retail market. The developments have opened up a number of new jobs that need filling.

Tulip’s HR director Kirsty Wilkins said: “We are just completing a major project to expand our Westerleigh operation and are looking for around 145 people to come and join us in a range of roles within our redeveloped state-of-the-art abattoir and newly created retail production area.

“This is a very exciting time in the development of our Westerleigh operation, as we have invested heavily to enable it to become a world-class production facility ready to meet the increasing demand for our range of quality food products, both here at home, and for export all around the world.”
