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.
