Celtica Foods set to invest £2.8m in new meat processing facility
Celtica Foods, an associate company of Castell Howell, will invest £2.8m in a new meat processing facility at Cross Hands Food Park in Carmarthenshire, in a bid to extend its business.

We will double our capacity as a result of this investment, be able to introduce efficiencies and new technologies to meet that demand."
