Sleaford firm invests in herb factory in Turkey

It is based in southern Turkey

Packaged foods supplier Sleaford Quality Foods (SQF) has made a significant investment in its global herb production facilities with a new herb factory in southern Turkey.

The firm revealed the investment via parent company Jain Farm Fresh, which unveiled the 10,500 m2 herb factory.

Jain Farm Fresh opened a new state-of-the-art 14,000m2 spice facility in India just over a year ago.

It is the largest spice processing facility in India with a capacity of 24,000 metric tons per year.

It is also the only integrated spice facility from drying to milling in the world.

James Arnold, Managing Director of Sleaford Quality Foods, said: “This new facility is a huge boost to our capabilities.

It means SQF now has even tighter control on traceability, quality and testing.

“Our commitment to traceability means we have full control of sourcing as we deal directly with farmers, meaning our customers can trace our products from farm to fork.”

He added: “Together, these two facilities are game-changers for SQF – and, more importantly, our customers.”
