Hain Celestial has announced a multi-million pound investment to upgrade a frozen food site in the UK.

The investment at the Fakenham facility is expected to create around 150 jobs, its local Hain Daniels subsidiary said.

A spokesperson for Hain Daniels said the jobs will predominantly be "on shop floor and in production".

Products manufactured at the site include the Linda McCartney meat-free range and own-label frozen desserts.

The upgrade will include the installation of new production facilities and the upgrade of existing equipment in order to meet "growing demand" for the range of meat-free products, crumbles and hot eating desserts produced at the site.

Work on the upgrade has already commenced, with completion scheduled for autumn.

"It's great news for the local economy as we will be able to provide long term employment and excellent career prospects for people looking to join one of the UK's most progressive food companies," said Hain Daniels chief executive Rob Burnett.
