Hellers is expanding its plant near Christchurch due to increasing demand for its products.

The meat company says it will spend $18 million to double the size of its Kaiapoi site and bring all its operations there under one roof.

The expansion includes a new warehouse and distribution centre, freezers, inwards goods store, offices, and ready-to-eat slicing and packing area.

Last year, Hellers spent $2 million expanding a factory in Auckland.
