UK: Scarborough borough council approves McCain plant expansion

Scarborough Borough Council has formally recommended approval of McCain Foods’ GBP100m 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, according to the local press. As well as equipment upgrades, the renewal plans include state-of-the-art odor 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.
