The newly-formed company, in which both will have an equal stake, plans to employ about 6,000 people in the UK, they said.

They said Andy Dawkins, who is currently the managing director of Faccenda Foods, would be appointed chief executive of the new company and Chris Hall, fresh chicken director for Cargill Meats Europe, would be chief commercial officer.
