Significant expansion of its wholesaling business combined with the continued acceleration of new shop openings have prompted Greggs, the UK’s largest retail baker, to bring forward its existing plans to build a second savoury manufacturing facility in the south of England. The company is currently looking at potential sites and anticipate commencing construction in mid-2013.

“This will be a £30-35 million investment over a two year period and will provide the capacity we need to fulfil the significant growth potential for the brand in wholesaling, franchising and new shop openings whilst also further reducing our logistical costs,” says Ken McMeikan, chief executive of Greggs.

He continues: “We are making the Greggs brand more accessible to customers through our new shop openings and wholesaling and franchising channels and this underpins our strategy to deliver long-term profitable growth.”
