Northumbrian Fine Foods, the UK’s biggest gluten-free biscuit manufacturer, is investing 1.2 million pound in new baking production capabilities at their Gateshead facility.
Northumbrian Fine Foods (NFF) announced it is investing 1.2 million pound to expand capacity at its Gateshead facility in UK. The investment is the result of soaring demand for the company’s biscuits in the ‘free from’ sector that has seen turnover increase over the last five years by 80%. The baking oven will increase production capacity at NFF by 40% and will principally focus on the manufacture of ‘indulgent’ cookies, rotary moulded biscuits and bake bars such as Granola. Commenting on the investment, Stewart McLelland, managing director of NFF, said: “The new baking oven will play a key role in meeting current demand and also ensure that we can continue to grow the business significantly over the coming years.”
