Food Innovations Baking Group is to create 35 new jobs as part of a £3m investment to relocate to a new site in Nottinghamshire.

The move, backed by Ardenton Capital, saw the group centralise nine production units into one brand new facility on Panattoni Park in Eastwood.

Food Innovations is now looking to recruit for 10 technical and new product development jobs, with a further 25 roles available across production, from general and skilled operatives to line and area leaders. Full training and development plans will be in place for all new starters, with progression routes in place across the group’s three sites across the UK.

Purpose built

Jag Sanghera, human resources manager at Food Innovations’ Nottingham facility said: “Demand for our range of products has really accelerated during COVID-19 and this prompted the need for a purpose-built central facility in Nottinghamshire that will give us the platform for the next twenty years.

“We have moved from nine individual units to one central site, where all the administration, manufacturing and research and revelopment work is carried out under one roof and benefits from state-of-the-art production space.”

Food innovations produces a wide range of edible and non-edible products for use by baked goods manufacturers from its sites in Burnley, Chapel-en0le-Frith and Nottingham. Products ranged from cake mixes and kits, food colourings and flavourings, to cupcake cases and cake boards to frostings, sugar paste and marzipan.

Rapid expansion

Sanghera added: “There is rapid expansion across the group and our Nottingham facility is going to be crucial to realising this…we now just need local people to join us on the journey.”

Meanwhile, last month, 2 Sisters Food Group announced it was to invest £7.5m into its Sandycroft poultry factory, creating more than 200 jobs.

The investment has enabled the installation of new technology including automated packing lines, new packaging machines, upgrading cutting lines to increase capacity and x-ray bone detection machinery for fillet production.
