15-07-2009 | |

UK pig producer, Bowes of Norfolk, recently bought by Cranswick, has sold its pig rearing and fattening division to an existing management team.

A new company, called East Anglian Pigs, has been formed and will maintain the pig production business, which includes over 1200ha (3000 acres) of pig breeding farms.

“The breeding element of the business is one of the biggest in the country and we feel provides future opportunities for our newly-formed company moving forward in not just the existing markets we operate within, but potentially new markets as well,” commented Adrian Dowling, East Anglian Pigs managing director.
