Pet food manufacturer, Pets Choice, has been granted planning permission for a new manufacturing site close to its Head Office facility in Blackburn, Lancashire.
Construction of the 65,000sq.ft well equipped factory commenced in September. It will include significant investment in automation and improvements in processes, with the planned site being fully operational by late 2018.
Tony Raeburn, CEO, said: “The construction of our new manufacturing site allows us the opportunity to continue creating innovative products and ensuring that we are at the forefront of the pet food industry.
“We have seen incremental growth over the last three years and by investing in the new site we look forward to continuing this success.
“As a company we are dedicated to developing new foods and treats which we know our customers will enjoy and with the plans we have released today, we hope to create more products at the very best quality.”
