Allied Bakeries, part of Associated British Foods, has completed its £210 million capital investment programme designed to create a state-of-the-art baking capability across the UK and ensure the reliable supply of high quality bread to customers. The programme has also set a new benchmark for standards of food safety in the bakery sector and has enhanced workplace safety.

The five-year upgrade programme was completed with the modernisation of the Glasgow bakery during last year and the recent installation of a new £31 million bread plant in Stevenage which is capable of producing 9,000 loaves per hour. Allied Bakeries’ sites at Stockport, West Bromwich, Glasgow and London have also benefited from investment.

Allied Bakeries produces a range of bakery products under the Kingsmill, Sunblest, Allinson and Burgen brands, with flour and semolina produced by sister company, Allied Mills. The investment programme has also facilitated greater flexibility in new product development with recent innovations including include Kingsmill Great White, a white bread with as much fibre as a wholemeal loaf, new re-sealable packaging for Kingsmill wraps, and Sandwich Thins.
