UK: Cranswick to build production facility
Cranwick's new facility is expected to create around 100 jobs
UK sausage and bacon supplier Cranswick is to build a production plant in the north of England.
A spokesperson for Cranswick told just-food today (22 August) that the company is looking to expand onto the site adjacent to the current Yorkshire Baker plant at Malton in North Yorkshire.
The facility will produce premium pies and pasties, the spokesperson said and is expected to create around 100 jobs.
