Small and medium-sized enterprises form the lifeblood of our economy in Suffolk and Dan was delighted to be invited to visit Jack Brand Ltd in Claydon, which is a traditional, family-run poultry processing company that now handles around 210,000 birds per week.

Despite the cost of tickets from Ipswich, reliability and speed of service have not improved over the years....
