Dr Dan shows support for local poultry-processing business, Jack Brand Ltd.

Dr Dan with Paul Adams, Alison Brand and Jonathan Brand at Jack Brand Ltd in ClaydonSmall 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. Jack Brand Ltd is an excellent example of a thriving independent business based in Suffolk - of which there are many - and employs over 100 local people at its Claydon factory.

After being given a tour of the purpose-built production facility, Dan was told how the company now turns over more than £20 million per year and has grown significantly since it was established over 100 years ago. It is essential that Suffolk businesses like Jack Brand are properly supported by the Government, and Dan will continue to do all he can in Parliament to ensure that all our local businesses have the necessary support from Government to continue being successful.
