Company Profile

Cranswick's operations are focused on the production and supply of premium food products, primarily in the UK, with a small (but increasing) proportion of sales being exported. It produces a range of predominantly fresh products including fresh pork, sausage, bacon, cooked meats, artisan pastry products and charcuterie, sold mainly through the large retail channel. The recent acquisition of Benson Park added premium cooked poultry to its product portfolio and supports its focus on the 'food-to-go' sector. In April 2016, Cranswick acquired Crown Chicken, an integrated poultry producer.
