According to the group, the “major investment” will bring about an improvement to production efficiency and will help the bakery increase its capabilities.
The first wave of improvements has gone towards increasing the efficiency of Kara’s Lanham line, where the baker’s floured baps and seeded deli rolls are made. A significant part of the funds has also been invested in the Lanham Proofer, this has included the replacement of the proofer enclosure, air conditioning system and hydraulic drive pack.
A Finsbury Food Group statement, read: “All of these modifications will result in a more effective and integrated functioning system to improve quality and consistency as well as to reduce lost time and meet efficient production standards.
“Further investment will see Kara improve its main bakery ventilation systems and the replacement of one of the three spiral freezers, which will further increase capacity for the future.”
