Business Description
This long established specialist bakery has been successfully trading for more than 15 years and is now regarded as one of the finest suppliers of sponge products within the UK. Using only the finest quality ingredients available matched with high quality mixing and production techniques this bakery ensures that their products meet the exacting standards of their large blue chip customers consistently year in, year out. Because of this the business has built a formidable presence in its particular sector and cemented very strong relationships with its clients by becoming a key supply partner to them.

Operating from modern freehold premises (circa 11,000 square feet) the business is able to manufacture its products efficiently and profitably. The unit currently has one semi-automated production line in place, together with mixing and storage areas, however there is huge scope to add additional lines within the current site, should a new owner so require.

The business has chosen to concentrate on a specialist area of the market. It has a select number of large customers who value its expertise and manufacturing capability and it works very closely with them to ensure demand is met.

This knowledge enables the business to operate very efficiently with low overheads. The vendor has set up the infrastructure so that the production facility only operates for 2.5 days/week and this is sufficient to meet current demand!

In what can be a highly competitive industry, this business has positioned itself as a niche supplier and because of this has experienced consistent sales and has performed very impressively throughout its existence, even during the recent recession. They have never compromised their standards and have always maintained their reputation for quality, reliability and honesty.

The bakery has an experienced and dedicated production workforce who are committed to providing their customers with a friendly and efficient service and the finest quality products.

The business has all of the necessary requirements, standards and accreditations in place with efficient procedures for quality control, hygiene, ingredient testing, production, and distribution. It is regularly audited by its customers and uses an external consultancy to ensure full compliance and it holds the much coveted BRC Standard- “A” grade certification.
Trading Hours:

Currently 2.5 days a week.
There is no reason why a new owner could not extend production/business hours.

Number of Employees: 10

Tenure: Freehold


The business has never undertaken any marketing initiatives. It has relied on superior product supply, knowledge and customer retention to generate sales for the last 15 years or so. There is great scope for the new owners to further develop the business

Support & Training:
