Dawn Pork & Bacon has origins with the Arrow Group. Part of the Group's original activities included the production of live pigs, and in 1986 the company decided to extend its offering by slaughtering and processing its own pigs.
With that in mind, a new purpose-built facility was constructed, containing one of the most modern and technically efficient pork processing plants in Europe.
The current workforce stands at 298 and has a capacity to slaughter 10,800 pigs per week in one shift pattern. The operation consists of slaughtering, primal cutting, de-boning, trimming, curing, packing and freezing.
