The Meatsnacks Group, Europe’s largest producer of beef jerky and biltong snacks, is to lease the HIE smokehouse facility in Grantown as part of the company’s continued expansion.

The move that could create up to 20 new jobs after the facility was vacated by Young’s Seafoods in March.

Meatsnacks was formed after a merger of the Forres based Jerky Group with Cruga in Milton Keynes.

David Oxley, HIE area manager in Moray, said: ““As anticipated we had a lot of interest in the building from companies in the food processing sector. The smokehouse is an attractive facility and some of the other interested parties may understandably be disappointed not to have secured the lease.

“The facility has been a valuable economic asset for Grantown and an important place for local employment. We are very pleased to see it becoming an active production facility once more, and look forward to continuing to work with Meatsnacks as their business develops.”
