2 Sisters to expand production at Merthyr Tydfil plant

2 Sisters Food Group has announced plans to invest £1.4 million (m) to expand supply from its processing facility in Merthyr Tydfil. 

The investment will be spent on modernising the beef boning hall and improving efficiency, quality and process control. The plant has the capacity to slaughter and de-bone 2,400 cattle and 24,000 lambs per week. It employs around 700 staff.

Ranjit Singh, 2 Sisters CEO, said: “Investment in the boning hall will ensure that we create a leaner, more efficient supply chain at our flagship facility in Wales.

“I’m confident that our Better Before Bigger strategy, with its efficiency platform, will put us in a good place for the long term.”

Andrew Cracknell, managing director of 2 Sisters Red Meat, added: “The investment in our cutting operation will future-proof jobs at the site and provide the platform for additional growth in beef sales over the next decade.”

Last month, the company expanded its Perthshire chicken processing site to create an additional 150 jobs at the plant.
