Danish Crown subsidiary Tulip has completed the modernisation and expansion of its Westerleigh plant in Gloucestershire, England, as part of a project costing approximately DKK160m (£16m).

The firm said the slaughterhouse was now "one of the most modern and advanced"​ in the UK, and would enable Tulip to increase its market share in the domestic market as well as capitalising on export opportunities, particularly to China.

As part of the investment, which has resulted in creation of 145 new vacancies, the firm has also established a new retail production area, in which joints can be cured and produced for the UK retail market.

Chris Thomas, chief executive, Tulip, said: "We are going through a very exciting development in Westerleigh, where we have made major investments. The aim is to ensure a facility that is absolutely world-class, which meets the increasing demands of our production of quality products, both domestically and around the world."
