Moy Park to shut Wisbech site

Moy Park is to close its Wisbech site in Cambridgeshire. It will move production to its Grantham site in Lincolnshire. The Wisbech site currently focuses on cooked whole birds, marinated chicken, snacking products and cooked sliced meats.

In 2013, Moy Park announced a £20 million expansion at Grantham which created 150 additional jobs and secured 700 roles. At the time it announced plans to consolidate its Grantham and Wisbech Convenience Foods operations “to deliver a more streamlined structure for the business”.

A Moy Park spokesperson said: “Small-scale production at Wisbech will be transferring to other company facilities at the end of January. The small number of employees affected will all be offered alternative jobs within the company.”
