Nestlé UK is investing £5.25 million in its confectionery factory at Halifax in West Yorkshire to manufacture a popular new product – Peanut Butter Cups. The investment means that Nestlé’s Halifax site will create 45 additional jobs. From October 2015, Nestlé will manufacture 5,500 tonnes of Peanut Butter Cups each year for export to the US market.

Nestlé, which employs almost 5,000 people in the UK and Ireland across 21 sites, sells almost two billion products every year to 97% to households there. The Halifax site is the home of Quality Street, After Eight and Easter eggs, and employs up to 1,000 people at times of peak production.

Nestlé is also one of the UK food industry’s largest exporters, exporting almost £350 million worth of products to over 70 countries every year.

Giles Mann, factory manager at Nestlé’s Halifax site says: “I’m delighted that Halifax has been chosen to produce this popular new product in the UK. It’s great that we have been able to work with the US to find a way to benefit both our markets.

He adds: “Despite internal and external options across the world, Halifax has shown great leadership in manufacturing capability and more importantly a great desire to bring the production to West Yorkshire. This new opportunity further proves our position as world-class and we look forward to seeing the products exported to the USA and hitting the shelves.”
