Innovative food recycling solutions company, Resource Food has opened a new facility in Rugby, Warwickshire, to expand its offering in response to a growing customer demand.

The new facility is a mirror image of its HQ in Northamptonshire, adopting the same 360˚ approach to food recycling, enabling food manufacturers and retailers to draw more value from every element of surplus products, from the food to the packaging. Reusing the surplus food as high-quality sustainable animal feed or pet food ingredients, creating a circular economy of reuse.

Existing customers, including national food retailers and manufacturers will be diverted to the new facility, conveniently located at Swift Valley Industrial Estate, Rugby, just minutes from the M6. The facility has the capacity of taking in excess of 600-tonnes of surplus food products per week. With several new long-term contracts and strategic supply partnerships already secured, it is anticipated the facility will see substantial growth over the next 12 months.

The new facility, which has opened its’ doors this month, will create a variety of new jobs for the area, including Warehouse Operatives, Forklift Drivers, Supervisors and Managers.
