Pet food manufacturer Butcher's opens £38m Crick factory

Dog food manufacturer Butcher's Pet Care has opened a new £38m factory in Crick, Northamptonshire.

The new building, an expansion to the previous site, created 50 jobs and is set to allow the family owned company to produce 1,000 cans of pet food per minute.

Butcher's chairman Graham Baker said the factory would help the company expand into Europe to meet demand.

The company owns Butcher's, Butcher's Choice, and Butcher's Superior brands.
