UK bakery distribution business Coultons Bread is to open a new depot in Caernarfon, creating 20 jobs, after teaming up with Kingsmill owner Allied Bakeries.

The depot, located on the Cibyn Industrial Estate, is a strategic partnership between Coultons Bread and Allied Bakeries and will distribute the full catalogue of Allied Bakeries brands, including Kingsmill, Burgen, Allinson and Sunblest. It will open on 14 November and will operate under the Coultons Bread brand name.

This is the seventh Coultons depot, with the company operating other sites in Liverpool, Manchester, Bradford, Nottingham, Carlisle and Newcastle.

Howard Hunter, managing director of Coultons Bread, said: “This is an exciting time for us at Coultons Bread as we look to grow our bakery third-party logistics services. We have established this business model with Allied Bakeries over the page three years at our existing six depots and we are proud to have built a strong reputation for operational efficiency and service excellence for our customers.”

In July Allied announced its decision to close a distribution centre in Flintshire as part of an efficiency review.
