Buyers should eat up this hi-tech food plant

By David Elliott

News that Dutch Vion Group has put its UK food business up for sale is worrying, but the Cookstown plant seems to have plenty going for it to attract a buyer.

Profitable and efficient, it's been updating its processing equipment to bring itself up to speed with the latest technologies over the last few months and recently announced an expansion of its business - so it shouldn't have many problems wooing a suiter, whether it be through a purchase of the whole UK business, a purchase of just the Cookstown business or a management buyout.

The next few days will be tough for workers but with any luck the site's good health will see a buyer ensure the Cookstown sizzle doesn't go out.
