The company, which supplied speciality Asian breads to large retail chains and operated from premises on Baring Street –near Manchester’s Piccadilly station – ceased trading earlier this month.
Steven Wiseglass, director and licensed insolvency practitioner at Inquesta, has been appointed as liquidator. He is now aiming to recover money for creditors by selling off plant and machinery.
Trading since 2006
Euro Bakery, which had been trading since 2006, supplied naans, parathas, rotis and other bakery products, including mini-pizza bases, to retailers such as Tesco, Morrisons and Home Bargains.
However, after an initial period of success and expansion, the firm began to encounter severe cash flow problems, according to Inquesta.
It meant the business did not have enough money to pay wages and suppliers, or to buy raw materials, so it was forced to stop trading. As a result, all of its employees have been made redundant.
“Euro Bakery tried to trade through its difficulties but ultimately it became untenable for the business to continue to operate, which has regrettably resulted in 18 redundancies,” said Wiseglass.
“I am now seeking a buyer for the plant and machinery in order to recover money for creditors.”
