1974 Pork Farms and Northern Foods created a joint venture company Porkdown, to supply meat products to French foods group Danone.

1974 Pork Farms Ltd wanted to extend the activities of the company because of its initial success[1]

Soon after production started, Danone undertook a group wide-review; on deciding to concentrate on their milk-based products line, they shut down the contract. The resultant losses closed Porkdown.
