  • Unit K located at the following address: Greencore Northampton, Unit 1, Clayfield Close, Moulton Park, Northampton, NN3 6QF.

Local restrictions

Business closure

In order to help prevent the spread of coronavirus, the Greencore factory in Northampton has voluntarily closed as of 3pm on 21 August 2020.


Workers who have undertaken work in the affected areas above at any point since 7 August 2020 and the people they live with (or have formed a support bubble with) should self-isolate at home for 2 weeks.

Advice on self-isolation can be found in the stay at home guidance.

The Health Secretary will introduce regulations to ensure that this self-isolation period is legally enforced. Anyone who leaves self-isolation before the 2-week period ends without reasonable excuse will be subject to fines.
