Chippindale Foods, its northern border Yorkshire-based the opportunity egg supplier, has long been acquired by Bradford-headquartered supermarket, Morrisons.
Morrisons said the purchasing will enable it to “make a lot more of its fresh foods and turn more competitive for purchasers on these important everyday products”.
With the brand new business under its belt, the supermarket also brings out forward the date that the eggs should come from non-caged eggs with the current commitment of 2025.
The addition of the Chippindale Foods business will enable Morrisons to operate closely with egg farmers to compliment a sustainable supply chain, the welfare of hens and also the quality in their eggs.
Nick Chippindale, Managing Director, who’ll follow this company along with the 54 staff employed at the website at Flaxby, becomes Morrisons colleagues in a very growing manufacturing business.
Morrisons Manufacturing Director, Andrew Thornber, said: “The addition of Chippindale Foods for our fresh foods manufacturing business will deliver us the cabability to expand our deep relationships with British farmers and turn a lot more competitive for all our supermarket and wholesale customers.”
