Newry-based Around Noon is investing over £500,000 to quadruple the size of its bakery on the back of increased demand from a range of blue-chip customers.

The food-to-go manufacturer’s bakery operation, which supplies high street retailers and independent stores in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland as well as UK travel sector operators, is based beside its headquarters at Greenbank Industrial Estate.

The investment will fund the acquisition of, and expansion into, a 10,000-square-foot unit adjoining the bakery’s existing premises and the purchase of new machinery; expanding the bakery’s capacity to meet demand from customers throughout the UK and Ireland.

“Around Noon Bakery continues to go from strength to strength, experiencing growing demand from new and existing customers,” said Gareth Chambers, CEO of Around Noon. “The investment we are making will allow the bakery to significantly increase capacity and enable it to produce a wider range of products.”

Around Noon Bakery produces bakery items, including cakes, muffins, pastries, slices, cupcakes, brownies and scones, for a range of customers and under its own Sweet Things brand.
