Hilton Food Group Expands Operations To New Zealand

Retail meat-packing company Hilton Food Group has announced that it is investing €33 million (NZ $54 million) in a new facility in New Zealand.

The company plans to construct the new meat-processing factory in Auckland, in order to supply Progressive Enterprises, which operates the country’s Countdown Supermarkets.

Production

The facility will manufacture a range of beef, lamb, pork and chicken products for Progressive’s store network.

The company says that its newly formed subsidiary, Hilton Foods New Zealand, will be financing the food-packing facility, with the aim of commencing production by 2020.

Last month, Hilton reported revenue growth of 9.3% in the first half of 2017, saying that it was continuing with a number of expansion plans.
