A multi-million pound investment by poultry processor, Moy Park, in its Ashbourne facility has enabled the site to produce one million chickens per week.
The company recently completed a £4 million investment at the premises, which included the installation of new processing and cutting lines, advanced chilling, software and hardware equipment, and the refurbishment of grading and storage areas.
According to Moy Park, the investment programme has boosted production at Ashbourne by a third.
