Cranswick acquires premium outdoor pig farming business
Topics: CRANSWICK ACQUIRE PIG FARMING
Packington Pork Limited comprises pig farming and rearing operations and specialises in the production of British free range and outdoor bred pigs. The business operates predominantly from a range of sites across Staffordshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.
The transaction increases Cranswick’s self-sufficiency in UK pigs processed to over 25%, securing direct control over a significant part of its supply chain for premium pigs, reinforcing its commitment to developing a sustainable and traceable farm to fork operation.
The transaction does not include the Packington Free Range business, which will be retained by the Mercer family as a standalone business operating under the Packington brand. ■
