The £16m expansion has turned the plant into one of the most advanced in the country, the company claims.

With this investment, the company will be able to grow its local market as well as increase its capacity to export products around the world including the growing Chinese market.

Tulip HR director Kirsty Wilkins said: "This is a very exciting time in the development of our Westerleigh operation as we have invested heavily to enable it to become a world-class production facility ready to meet the increasing demand for our range of quality food products, both here at home, and for export all around the world."

Tulip, owned by Danish Crown Group, operates 16 sites across the UK. It currently employs 7,500 people.

The company offers fresh pork, bacon, sausages, gammon, and cooked and canned meats; and savory snacks, including scotch eggs and cocktail sausages.
