2 Sisters Food Group Invests £45m in Supply Chain

2 Sisters Food Group has announced plans to invest £45m to make its Scunthorpe facility more efficient.

Improving efficiencies

The chicken processing plant opened in 1988 and was strategically located in the midst of farms, feed mills and hatcheries to cut down on transport. The 74,000 sq m site will now be upgraded to improve efficiencies, with robotic cells being installed to automate processes. It represents a significant proportion of the £150m planned investment by 2 Sisters in its most recent full year results, and will see the site’s capacity increased by a third to 2.4m birds being processed a week.

A world-class facility

Dan Whillock, general manager at the site, commented: “The whole team is delighted that Scunthorpe has been selected for such a major investment, the biggest since the site was built in 1988…The project has taken many months of planning and our goal has always been to build a truly world-class facility, using the very latest technology to ensure the highest standards of animal welfare, biosecurity and product quality for our customers.”

Developing a lasting relationship with the discounters

Recently, 2 Sisters Food Group has made significant progress in developing more collaborative relationships with Aldi and Lidl. The companies have worked on a number of supply chain projects, helping to drive efficiency and improve capability, marking a collaborative change in the relationship.
