Noble Foods to create 150 jobs with new manufacturing site

UK egg producer Noble Foods is to expand its consumer foods business with a substantial investment in an added-value manufacturing site. The investment is in addition to other recent acquisitions with production at the new site in Leicestershire set to begin production in the summer.

Noble Foods says it aims to build on its legacy at the new 10,000 square-metre manufacturing site by introducing a range of pre-prepared foods using eggs. At its peak, the site has the potential to use over 1.6 million eggs per week.

Aimed at the retail, quick service restaurant (QSR) and wholesale market, foods including omelettes, egg bites, and frittatas will be made at the site, with a pipeline of innovative new egg-products already in development. The Leicestershire manufacturing site will create up to 150 jobs in its phased opening and adds to Noble’s diverse portfolio, which already includes shell and liquid egg, animal feed, poultry, green energy, and agriculture businesses.

Will Cadbury, added value business lead at Noble Foods, said: “I’m excited that our new investment will help us in our ambition to create more egg-based foods, in different formats, so that more people can enjoy eggs throughout the day. We already know that eggs are one of the most versatile and nutritious foods, with the lowest carbon output of any animal protein. This aligns brilliantly with our purpose ‘to better nourish people, animals and planet’ and our investment will really help to accelerate that, by providing more eggs, for more people, on more occasions.

“Opening a new facility is a big moment for all of us at Noble Foods and I can’t wait to see the products coming off the line in the coming months. It’s fantastic that our investment will create new jobs in Leicestershire too, and opportunities for colleagues to develop their careers. We will be bringing nutritious and convenient products to our customers, several of whom already share our excitement. Combining our deep understanding of farm to fork, along with food and manufacturing experience, gives our customers the confidence they’ll be benefiting from qualities synonymous with Noble Foods.”
