When you join 2 Sisters, you will become part of the UK’s largest food manufacturer with ambitious plans and as such you can look forward to working with a whole bunch of talented colleagues with a shared passion for quality, service and most importantly food.

At the heart of this, our UK Poultry division produces a third of all poultry eaten in the UK and represents more than half of 2 Sisters’ business by sales. The division employs over 7,000 people working in a chilled environment to process poultry products which are then marketed to UK consumers via major retailers.

The Willand factory is located in mid-Devon and was first established in 1898 as an egg packing plant before expanding into the meat trade. Small scale chicken processing started in 1958 which expanded over the next 50 years with the site pioneering the production of poultry for the retail market. The poultry division at Willand was acquired by 2 Sisters Food Group in January 2008 and by 2013 over 1m birds were being processed here.
