Long-standing customer, Signature Flatbreads, have commissioned a new set of Fuji wrapping machines at its Dunstable factory in a bid to ramp up production during the current pandemic. Signature Flatbreads manufacture tortilla wraps, naan breads, pizza bases and pittas for UK retailers and foodservice operators.
Similar to other bakery manufacturers, Signature Flatbreads experienced strong sales in the lead-up to and throughout lockdown, which inspired a significant investment into the factory.
In particular, they required a new Fuji wrapper to withstand the increased demand of their Greek Style Flatbreads, which they believe to be the result of families wanting to eat more varied foods at home. On top of this, their Deli Kitchen brand saw rapid growth during this period as consumers look for meal alternatives to prepare at home.
As a result of their expansion, the factory has created 75-100 new job opportunities.
We very much look forward to continuing our working relationship with Signature Flatbreads.
If your operation is looking to increase capacity over the coming months, we have a number of high-speed wrappers held in European stock, available on short lead times. To find out more, call us on 01252 815 252.
