Organic pie firm expands

29 October, 2009

Organic pasty and pie specialist Jones Organic has announced plans to expand its production facilities, with the addition of a new site, to cope with increased demand from specialist retailers in London and south-east England.

The firm, based in Bridgend, began distributing its pies through Stratford Fine Foods in September, and now has orders coming in from London-based speciality retailers, including Planet Organic and As Nature Intended.

It signed the lease for a neighbouring 750sq ft factory unit, in October. “We’ve been really tight for space in the bakery to meet orders recently,” explained founder and MD Mike Sweetman.

“Both our Organic Bake-Off range and our Baked Chilled range are selling very well – we’ve had no choice but to extend our bakery to cope.”

The office and storage has been moved from its existing 1,500sq ft site, releasing space in the existing unit for: the doubling of its goods-out freezer capacity to house bake-off lines; the doubling of its baking capacity with a new rack oven for baked-chilled lines; and a new packing area, explained Sweetman.

The work is due to be completed by the end of November this year. Jones Organic’s pies are available throughout the UK, frozen-unbaked from Stratford Fine Foods, Bako Western or Bako Wales, or baked-chilled directly from the bakery.
