Few opportunities come along to ‘jump on a well-invested business growth career train’ as this one. Our client has achieved significant growth across mainland Europe and the UK, with added-value, premium-quality bakery category products which are proving a huge success with both the trade and the consumer.

Privately owned, they have already built two new state-of-the-art manufacturing plants and have a strong strategic vision for further growth including the UK market, where they are planning substantial investment to both accelerate sales growth and build a brand new production facility – exciting times ahead!
