Salad company completes Fenland factory expansion as demand grows
A SALAD company has completed the final phase of a �1million expansion project to its Fenland factory.
Wingland Foods, at Sutton Bridge, South Lincolnshire, completed the expansion programme to satisfy growing demand from a high-street supermarket.
The expansion - which provides additional cooking space - was the third phase of a project which dates back to 2005. It was designed to meet environmental standards and will house �100,000 of new equipment.
The company, owned by Icelandic convenience food giant Bakkavor, produces freshly prepared salads.
Jonathan Fowler, operations manager at Wingland Foods, said: “Since 2005, Wingland has expanded to ensure we satisfy our customer commitments.
