Page 1: Hazlewood Sandwiches
Greencore's traditional activities lie at the start of the food production chain, whereas the new convenience foods operations are at the end of it, and include many products with high added-value.
Hazlewood Sandwiches is the largest company within Greencore's Chilled Foods Division. It employs 3,000 people, of whom 2,000 work at Manton Wood and 650 work at the company's Park Royal site that serves London and southern England. There are also 350 distribution staff employed in 15 depots across the UK. It's a huge operation - every year the business uses 7 million loaves and 244 million prawns.
Hazlewood Sandwiches' mission statement is: 'to lead the UK chilled sandwich market'.
The £25 million invested in the Worksop factory supports this mission by:
- providing modern facilities
- tripling production capacity compared with the previous site.
