Baker & Baker makes £2.9m cookie production investment

Bakery products manufacturer Baker & Baker has made a significant investment in one of the American bakery-style cookie production lines at its Wirral site.

The investment, totalling almost £2.9m, has been made over a number of months to increase capacity and introduce new machinery to improve the quality and output of the line. The machinery installed includes a wirecutter, mixer and mixing bowls and weighing hoppers. New workspaces, including washrooms and sieving and de-boxing areas have also been created on the factory floor.

At the end of January, two bulk silos were installed to complement the existing units on site, which contain bulk ingredients such as sugar and flour. The investment will also see an upskilling of existing site teams to operate the new equipment, and eight new full-time positions have been created to manage the additional capacity. Installation on the factory floor commenced in February and was completed in April.
