Moy Park restarts processing at Ballymena plant

Moy Park has recommenced processing live birds at its factory in Ballymena, Co Antrim.

The poultry processor suspended the live processing line in January 2022 in response to “customer growth and labour market challenges”.

Moy Park is now looking to recruit 150 staff for permanent positions across the business.

“We’ll be working closely with our farming and supply chain partners as customer demand for our products grows in future,” said Gary Leslie from Moy Park.
