WORLD'S BIGGEST MEAT ALTERNATIVE FACILITY OPENS IN THE UK.
Quorn Foods has opened the world’s biggest meat alternative production facility in the North East of England.
The factory expansion of 9,500m will double production capacity of Quorn products.
It's part of a £150m investment by Quorn Foods.
The production facility will produce 1.33M packs of Quorn products per week.
Quorn Foods Chief Executive Kevin Brennan says: "We are the world leader in meat alternatives and have seen our business grow by 16% in the last year. We see decades of growth ahead of us as consumers respond to growing environmental concerns around meat production.
"We provide dramatic sustainability benefits compared to meat and with this new facility will enhance those benefits further. Sustainability is at the heart of our organisation and we are committed to ensuring we are being responsible with the carbon footprint of our business."
