Regal Food Group secures grant for expansion
The Regal Food Group has secured a grant worth £89,391 from the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (the LEP) towards the expansion of its production facility that will create 30 new jobs.
The company manufactures and supplies more than 100 different product lines under two brands – Regal Foods and Yorkshire Bakery – which includes a variety of cakes and pastries.
This project received investment from the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (the LEP), delivered by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, through the Leeds City Region Growth Deal – a £1 billion package of Government investment to accelerate growth and create jobs across Leeds City Region.
The company has also received support from the LEP to invest in new technology, undertake an energy audit to identify ways to save money and reduce carbon emissions.
Absar Younis, Operations Director, and Faz Ali, Group Sales Marketing Director of Regal Foods Group said: “Support from the LEP will help Regal Foods to expand our manufacturing and production facility in order to manufacture a new product, Bombay Mix, to fulfil a supply gap in the UK and in turn create 30 new associated jobs.”
