A new unit is being built on the other side of the road from the current main set of buildings.
“Previously, there were two separate office blocks over there, and together with the buildings on this side, we’ve been operating within seven separate areas,” Bagwell explained.
“We hope to have the building ready to occupy by October, and will look to start production next spring. Our overall capacity will increase dramatically. We’ll go from about 1.2bn teabags a year now, to being able to produce around 5bn.”
