“Our plans now involve increasing our capacity for commercial volumes so we can service more of the larger retailers and we are already talking to the big supermarket chains about achieving listings. We also intend to innovate within our product development so we can be more artisan in what we do.”
Well known in Yorkshire, Shipley-based Hughes Bakers was founded over 90 years ago and works with an established supply chain to produce a diverse range of baked goods.
The company is using a £600,000 loan from NPIF – FW Capital Debt Finance to increase on-site capacity, simplify its product range in line with current consumer trends and work towards achieving British Retail Consortium (BRC) accreditation. Twelve jobs will also be created to supplement the existing team of 73.
