New Bake Production Line For Northumbrian Fine Foods Increases Capacity

A new £1.2 million bake oven and production line at Northumbrian Fine Foods (NFF) is now fully operational and is already significantly adding to production capacity at the Gateshead-based, UK biscuit manufacturer. The new line will help meet the soaring demand for the company’s rapidly expanding range of biscuits, especially in the gluten-free sector. The oven and associated production line has increased baked production output by around 30% and created 40 new jobs in the process.

“The new bake line will enable us to further develop our range of ‘free-from’ biscuits and cookies to meet strong customer demand,” says Stewart McLelland, NFF managing director. “This investment will reinforce our leading position in the gluten-free sector and enable us to develop new markets, including export.”

The new line will focus on the production of a wide range of different biscuits including ‘indulgent’ cookies, rotary moulded biscuits and bake bars such as Granola.

As well as major supermarket own-label products, NFF also manufactures gluten-free biscuits under the Prewett’s brand. About 70% of the UK’s gluten free sweet biscuit production is carried out at the NFF site.
