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.

The facility will produce premium pies and pasties, the spokesperson said and is expected to create around 100 jobs.
