Investment at Blackpool Biscuit Site

Leading biscuit manufacturer has invested 5M at its Blackpool site, and is planning more in pursuit of expanding its power brands.
More than 40m has been invested over the past three years, supporting this month’s launch of Soft Baked cookies, which is worth 47m. This follows a 2m investment made in 2013 to increase capacity at the facility.
The latest 5m investment has increased production capacity and capabilities including a new production line for the new product. Director of Sweet, said: Introducing new innovative products ensures our power brands remain consumer favourites and that we’re continuing to transform the UK biscuit aisle, we’re confident that consumers and retailers alike will love this new cookie, making every day more of a treat.
