Work on 4m facility at Meadow Food is progressing

8 June 2020

Meadow Foods has announced it is developing a new segregated facility at its Chester site to produce plant-based products.

Building work on the £4m investment started in January at its Chester base at Rough Hill, Marlston-Cum-Lache, with food production expected to begin towards the end of this year.

The range of ingredients will consist of milks, creams, yoghurts, and custard, with opportunities to expand the portfolio to consider sour creams, soft cheese and a base for mousse.

The new range reflects market trends that suggest 46 per cent of UK consumers tried plant-based alternatives at least once in 2019.
