Scarborough Borough Council has formally recommended approval of McCain Foods’ £100m expansion plans to renew its Scarborough production facility. The frozen food production company, which has operated at the Eastfield site for nearly 50 years, will use the investment to expand the facility and safeguard jobs. As well as equipment upgrades, the renewal plans include state-of-the-art odour reduction technology, as well as landscaping around the perimeter of the factory. Renewable technology will also be part of the investment, in an effort to further reduce the company’s environmental impact. More
