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.
