Independent Scottish company Johnstone’s Bakers has reported a 45% increase in turnover to £7.4m for the year ended November 30th 2009 and an improvement in pre-tax loss from £1.3m in 2008 to £40,000. Operating profit was £174,000.

Johnstone’s Bakers, which produces cake, cereal and biscuit bars and slices, including caramel shortcake, lemon cheesecake, orange chocolate tiffin, chocolate tiffin and Black Forest brownie, has more than trebled turnover since moving to its new factory in East Kilbride three years ago, following investment of £7m.

Having recently won contracts in the US, Australia and Russia to further extend its export business, Johnstrone’s Bakers is investing £400,000 to expand production capacity, including an enrobing machine and chocolate-making equipment, to cope with rising demand for its Connie’s Cakes range.
