EHL Ingredients has expanded its premises and invested £1m in a new 8,000 sq ft site on the Broadstone Industrial Estate in Reddish, Stockport.
With two facilities already on the estate, EHL’s third unit takes the total space to 40,000 sq ft.
The third site houses new machinery, including a vertical form filler, which fills pillow bags and tubs for dried herbs and spices, seeds and powders, as well as other products.
It will allow the company to process greater volumes of food ingredients, driven by an increase in customer requests and from existing clients placing larger orders, particularly in the bakery sector.
“The food ingredient sector is certainly in a period of growth and with the rise in popularity of organic, free-from, vegan and vegetarian bakery foods, we’re continuously innovating to bring retailers, brands and bakers the right ingredients to suit consumer trends," comments Tasneem Alonzo, joint managing director at EHL Ingredients.
The new site is fully operational as of February 2019.
