Hilton Food Group plc is a leading specialist meat-packing business supplying major international food retailers, Tesco, Ahold, Albert Heijn, ICA, Rimi and Coop Danmark from state of the art facilities located in the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Sweden, Poland and Denmark. In 2013 we announced a joint venture with Woolworths in Australia to operate their meat processing factory in Western Australia and to construct a new meat processing factory in Victoria. Hilton’s business model is to source its primal meat from a local and global base of quality suppliers, which it then processes and packs in large scale, modern, central meat-packing plants for onward distribution by third party hauliers. These plants operate at the high volume levels necessary to produce competitive unit packing costs, whilst achieving the levels of hygiene, food safety assurance, shelf life and product quality required by the Group’s discerning customer base. Rapid growth has been achieved both by geographical expansion, product range extensions and the underlying growth in the market achieved by Hilton’s retail customers. Hilton is now the largest dedicated packer of red meat in Europe based on revenue. With its headquarters in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, the Group now employs over 2,500 people across its six European sites. Hilton Food Group plc floated on the London Stock Exchange on 17th May 2007 and has a Premium Listing on LSE's Main Market and a constituent of the FTSE SmallCap Index.
