The North Yorkshire frozen desserts business has installed a new pasteuriser, just months after investing to double its annual manufacturing capacity to more than 1 million litres.
Commenting on the investment, sales manager Heather Wilson said: “Our commitment to continuous innovation and ongoing investment enables us to remain at the forefront of ice cream manufacturing, while also staying true to our heritage.
“This is the latest stage in significant investment across the business, both in production and in the parlour – including the recent addition of a dog exercise area, bringing the cows back for visitors to see, and we have some exciting plans for the coming months.”
Brymore said the self-funded investment will see production become up to 50% more efficient than the outgoing model, saving working hours and energy.
This was further complemented by the solar panel installation last year, investments that will help the company to significantly reduce its carbon footprint as it works towards net zero.
Saving on energy
The 100Kw PV scheme consists of 256 individual 395W panels which will produce around 85,000 free kWh of electricity over a 12-month period, reducing Brymor’s costs by approximately £20,000 in year one
At the time of its installation, sales and distribution manager Heather Wilson said: “In the current climate, the savings that the investment will enable us to achieve also means that we can invest in other areas of the business, which over time will create jobs and further support our local economy.”
Meanwhile, Frozen baked goods manufacturer Finedale Foods has reaped the benefits of a £400k investment into new production equipment, doubling production after Covid-19 decimated sales for the business.
