Premier Foods to Invest £20 Million at Barnsley Site

Following the ongoing success of Mr Kipling cake slices, Premier Foods is to invest £20 million in building a new production and packing line at its cake manufacturing site in Fish Dam Lane in Carlton, Barnsley. The new line will be capable of producing a staggering 300 million cake slices a year, doubling the company’s current capacity, to meet growing consumer demand for its Snack Pack format of individually wrapped slices.

Mr. Kipling Snack Packs, available in six different flavours, were introduced in 2011 to provide a convenient, on-the-go format suitable for lunchboxes and in-home eating occasions that have since proved a runaway success.

The investment will take 12 months to complete and involves the installation of a mixing station, oven and sophisticated packing robotics adding significant volume to the site.

Jason Ramsay, factory general manager for the Carlton site, says: “This investment is a strong vote of confidence by Premier Foods in the Carlton site and the Carlton workforce. We have been manufacturing Mr. Kipling cake at Carlton since 1975 and this latest news is a huge boost for all of us.”
