“As a growing business we’re faced with the challenges of accessing finance and this loan has provided us with a platform to make the most of the market opportunities. The commitment from FW Capital has been integral to us securing this investment.”
Founded in 2008, Appleby Creamery is an award-winning artisan cheese maker based in the Eden Valley in Cumbria, offering a range of premium handmade cheeses.
The company secured a £250,000 loan in 2018 from the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund, in a deal financed by NPIF - FW Capital Debt Finance, in order to carry out alterations to its newly-acquired, much larger industrial unit and transform it into a state-of-the-art production facility capable of meeting the most demanding food safety standards. The loan is also being used to help this growing business meet the surge in demand forecast after winning a number of significant contracts.
