Our History

DC Norris was launched in 1970 by David Norris (Managing Director) and his father Douglas Norris. Since then, it has been a leader in the Food Processing Industry.

David Norris played a key role in introducing the Cook Chill Concept to the rapidly growing ready meal market in the UK and Europe. This concept has since been developed and sold by DCN worldwide, benefiting foodservice installations and large central kitchens for chilled meal manufacturing.

Today, we employ over 100 people and manufacture some of the largest food processing plants globally. Our company continues to innovate, making food processing more efficient for the modern world.
