Dunbia buys mainland pigmeat plant

IRISH owned Dunbia has bought the trade and assets of Heathfield Foods, Shavington, Crewe, Cheshire.

It becomes the company’s only pigmeat plant outside Ireland and brings the group’s total number of processing facilities throughout the UK and Ireland to 10.

“The strategic location of the Heathfield Foods facility coupled with its strong pork supply base positioned it as a perfect fit for the Dunbia Group,” said Dunbia managing director Jim Dobson.

“By dovetailing into the existing business operations and infrastructure of Dunbia, the site will further increase our overall pork processing capabilities,” said Mr Dobson.

  • The Heathfield Foods facility has been renamed Dunbia (Crewe) and production under the new ownership began this week.
