News from Nice-Food
Nice-Food to invest $10 million
Nice-Food announced today the 3 April at their head office in London an investment of $10million. This investment is to be used for the purchasing of new machinery and for staff training in hygiene regulations and control.
This investment follows a recent court hearing in February of this year, when Nice-Food was fined a total of $1 million for failing to meet hygiene regulations. The court hearing was a result of an outbreak of food poisoning traced to products manufactured by Nice-Food. Operations Director Mr. Peter Green stated “The company takes food hygiene very seriously and as a result of the recent court hearing we have decided to replace all machinery that is more than three years old and to invest heavily in staff training to ensure complete compliance with food hygiene regulations”.
Nice-Food was founded in 1981 and employs over 800 staff in their factory in Wimbledon. ENDS
