ABN, owned by multinational giant Associated British Foods (ABF), announced that it will build a feed mill at Bury St Edmunds. Chicken and pig consumption is expected to grow as the UK population rises.

ABN, Britain's largest manufacturer of pig and poultry feed,  says it is looking to build a new state-of-the-art mill at the British Sugar factory at Bury St Edmunds which will "transform" the UK compounds animal feed industry.

British Sugar and ABN - which is part of AB Agri - are owned by multinational giant Associated British Foods (ABF) which operates five arms -grocery, sugar, grocery, ingredients and retail - including Primark.

ABN has earmarked a plot of land at the factory site which it hopes to turn into a feed factory.

Once approved, the new investment would represent a "boost" to the local economy, bringing direct and indirect employment opportunities to the region, including in the construction stages and when in operation.

Chicken and pig consumption is expected to grow as the UK population rises, and ABN says the new plant will help the UK keep pace with demand.

ABN general manager Danny Johnson said: “UK agriculture faces exciting opportunities ahead, to meet the demand for food from a growing UK population. This new mill will help to address the demand for more British animal feed for our industry customers."
