UK baker Geary's plans to boost production
UK company Geary's Bakery has confirmed plans to invest GBP13m (US$17m) in a project to double manufacturing capacity in Leicestershire.
The new plant is expected to double Geary's existing bread-making capacity to around one million loaves and five million rolls a week.
Geary's declined to comment on the details of the project ahead of a decision by planning chiefs, but it is understood the expanded facility new factory will be used to bake open-topped bread and a selection of rolls, all of which use longer fermenting periods to create a distinctive taste.
Geary's started out in nearby Ratby in 1906. In 2012, the company relocated to its 20,000 sq ft premises in Barrow upon Soar following a GBP1.5m investment.
