Warburtons announces new £20m bakery site
Warburtons has announced plans to open a £20m bakery site next to its existing bakery in Billington Road, Burnley.
The move has been created due to the changing tastes and needs identified for consumers. The expansion is to create a growth in the 'alternative sandwich' market, to produce products such as wraps and Sandwich Thins. The planning has been submitted to Burnley Cancel and is set to start work in February. The site will create 60 new jobs roles in the area and will produce around 5,500 products per hour.
