Tunnock plans expansion to boost production

UK biscuits maker Thomas Tunnock has confirmed plans to extend the firm's manufacturing plant in Lanarkshire, Scotland.

UK biscuits maker Thomas Tunnock has confirmed plans to extend the firm’s manufacturing plant in Lanarkshire, Scotland.

Tunnock is seeking permission from South Lanarkshire Council to expand its existing central bakery in Uddingston, near Glasgow, as part of moves to boost production of some of the firm’s famous brands including caramel wafers, snowballs and teacakes.

A spokesperson for Tunnock declined to comment on the plans in detail, but told just-food an application had been submitted for consideration by local planning chiefs. Planners have yet to respond to the firm’s application, the spokesperson said.

According to a report in The Scotsman, Tunnock is proposing to invest “several million pounds” in increasing production space by 1,900 sq m across two floors. The paper said the additional space will house new equipment needed to expand production.

Tunnock was established in 1890 and the factory has been on the current site for more than 50 years.
