East Yorkshire poultry business welcomes new key appointments

Poultry and game business, T. Soanes & Son, has recruited three new team members to help drive the business forward. 

The new recruits joining the Middleton on the Wolds business are; Richard Cooke as factory manager; Tom Kingston as sales manager and Helen Bettley as technical officer.

“Richard, Tom and Helen have settled in well and are valuable additions to our growing team,” said the company’s general manager Nigel Upson.

“The appointments will help us consolidate on the rapid sales growth seen over the last year and allow us to press on with our plans to grow further.”

Family-run T. Soanes and Son has been rearing and preparing chickens for 69 years. Every year, it rears over five million chickens and sells its meat to butchers and independent retailers in Yorkshire, and to wholesalers nationwide.
