Turkey producer Bernard Matthews back in profit


Turkey producer Bernard Matthews has announced a big investment in Norfolk and Suffolk safeguarding more than 2,000 jobs.

The company had a difficult time with an outbreak of bird flu at its factory at Holton in Suffolk in 2007 and the soaring cost of turkey feed in 2011.

But under new managing director Rob Mears, Bernard Matthews is now in profit. Turkey consumption is rising, and new investment is to be made in Norfolk and Suffolk.
