A multi-million pound expansion project at an East Yorkshire poultry business is nearing completion.

The final phase of a £3.3m investment to increase capacity at Soanes Poultry in Middleton on the Wolds is underway.

The work is set to increase capacity by 20 per cent, as well create 15 new jobs in the sales and marketing, processing and distribution departments.

Soanes Poultry’s general manager, Nigel Upson, commented: “Over the last three years, we have invested several million pounds to make improvements to our factory, the team’s working conditions and our farms.

“Improvements to the effluent plant, energy store, lairage, chiller, packing and portioning rooms have been made, and our new flagship farm at Horn Hill is now complete.

“By the end of the summer, we will have completed work on the effluent collection sump, the offal collection shed, cladding to the rear of the building and the installation of new machinery to improve quality.”
