90 new jobs as Carlisle food factory expands

A multi million pound expansion has been announced at Cavaghan and Gray in Carlisle, creating 90 new jobs.

2 Sisters Food Group says the expansion comes after it secured a “contract win with a major customer” which will see an extra 10 million fish ready meals produced at the Riverbank site every year.

A new 8,000sq ft production facility will be built and is due to be open by September.

It will create 25 new product lines for the ‘ready to cook’ fish meal category.

William Duncanson, Carlisle site director, said: “This is fantastic news for the business and will secure a lot of new jobs for the area.
“This announcement further strengthens our strategic partnership with our customers and it also reflects the confidence held by them in the whole team here in Carlisle.

“We’ll now be focusing on the hard work ahead to get the new facility up-and-running and get the new lines in stores for later this year.”

Carlisle MP John Stevenson welcomed the news as “tremendous” for Carlisle.

“It demonstrates confidence in our city from a major business and shows a commitment to Carlisle, which is very welcome,” he said.

Are west Cumbrians among the least friendly in Great Britain?

Yes, I find them difficult to deal with

No, I always find them humorous and helpful

Not sure, I'm never sure how to take the marras
