One of Northern Ireland’s largest flour mills has announced an investment of £200,000 at its Belfast plant.
The project at Neill’s Flour factory at College Place North includes the purchase of new packaging machinery, known as the Fawema, which the company said would increase business and productivity.
As the new Fawema, which packs bulk flour into retail packs, begins production, Neill’s Flour sales manager David Spence said that the company wanted to invest in the brand to ensure customers received the highest quality of produce possible.
“This investment reflects our commitment to innovation and the growth of the Neill’s Flour brand throughout the province, and further afield,” he said.
“We understand the demands of working in an increasingly sophisticated market, and the introduction of the Fawema shows how we are continually striving to increase our capabilities, identify new opportunities, and guarantee our customers the top quality they expect from Neill’s.”
Neill’s Flour is Northern Ireland’s leading flour mill, with a 46% market share in the province. The company was established in the mid 1800s.
