Company Overview

Cranswick plc is a leading and innovative supplier of premium, fresh and added value food products. The business employs over 10,000 people and operates from fifteen well invested, highly efficient production facilities in the UK. Cranswick was formed in the early 1970s by farmers in East Yorkshire to produce animal feed and has since evolved into a business focused on the supply of food products to the UK food retail and food service sectors. Well known for the production of gourmet sausages, the Company is involved in the breeding and rearing of premium British pigs and also supplies fresh pork, fresh chicken, cooked meats, premium cooked poultry, air-dried bacon and gammon, continental products and pastry products. Products are sold primarily under retailers' own labels including Sainsbury's 'Taste The Difference' and Tesco's 'Finest'. Sales from continuing operations in the year to March 2018 were £1,465 million and have grown more than 140 per cent over ten years.
