Falck Fire Services UK is delighted to announce that it has extended its excellent relationship with Quorn Food until 2024 to provide firefighting, medical response and security services.
Quorn Foods is the world’s leader in meat alternatives with a vision to create better protein for people and the planet, addressing global health and sustainability issues.
On 15 November 2018 the world’s biggest meat alternative production facility officially opened at Quorn Foods’ Belasis site in Billingham, in the North East. The factory expansion of 9,500m2 will double production capacity of Quorn’s core products, adding approximately 20,000 tonnes per annum. It is part of a £150m investment by Quorn Foods, reflecting an increase in flexitarian and vegan diets, and the fact that the UK is the most advanced meat-free market in the world.
Steve Finn, Quorn Foods’ Belasis Site Manager said: “It’s been a very exciting time for the business on Teesside, the design, construction and commissioning of the new facilities has been a significant challenge. We are delighted to continue our excellent relationship with Falck to ensure our assets and people are protected to the highest level. This extension of that relationship will allow us to drive our protection improvement processes over a longer period of time’.
Falck Fire Services Commercial Director, Paul Frankland commented:
“Falck has a great working relationship with Quorn Food through many business transformations, assuring their business continuity is essential to ensure they can focus on their asset development. Doubling their production capability is fantastic for the area and Falck is delighted to be part of their risk management considerations”.
