Dungannon based meat processor Elmgrove Foods has posted a massive increase in turnover in the last financial year - from £23.6m to £32.4m.

Part of the Dunbia Group, the company specialises in the production and supply of offal meat products, which are the entrails and internal organs.

From March 31, 2015 the company’s profits increased by almost a third at £8.8m, while its pre-tax profits were up almost 370% from £107,572 to £515,401.

Elmgrove, which won a Queen’s Award for enterprise in relation to international trade in 2013, put its growth down to the expansion of its product range in a strategic report.

It also said that management’s objectives are now to “continue the growth of the core products”.

Pleased with its position at the end of the financial year, the company said in the strategic report that accompanied the end of year results: “Over the next financial year the company aims to continue to grow through increased volumes and further expansion of the product ranges and diversification into further markets.”

Started in 2008 it now produces over 80 products.
