Supply chain round-up
Dunbia acquired the G Wood & Sons pork business, as Cranswick announced impressive trading results over the last year.
As Vion finally concluded the sale of its UK meat processing businesses to 2 Sisters, further rationalisation in the pig meat supply chain continued apace.
The Irish meat group Dunbia acquired the pork abattoir and processing business of G.Wood & Sons in Mansfield. The move represented an addition to its pig meat processing interests at Crewe (formerly Heathfield Foods) and at Preston (formerly Kepak).
Cranswick announced a successful 12 month trading period up to 30th March 2013. Sales rose by 7% and the company made investments of £30m in its UK businesses.
