Blakemans expands with £1.35m production facility

Sausage manufacturer James T Blakemans has opened a new £1.35 million production facility at its High Carr factory in Newcastle. 

Signalling expansion within the cooked meat market for Blakemans, the move sees a cold store room converted into a manufacturing facility which handles raw ingredients to cooked product all in one auditable area.

The extra capacity has enabled Blakemans to increase its cooked volume by up to 35%, the equivalent of an extra 42,000kg, with less handling of its products whilst still maintaining full traceability.

From weighing meat when it first comes in, to the finished cooked product leaving the frying facility takes less than 50 minutes, which has the benefit of reducing the lead time for customers in the ever fast paced food industry.

World Strong Man Eddie Hall was at the opening where he pulled the first production load from the new premises.
