Northern Ireland-based bakery ingredients supplier Andrew Ingredients is investing £750,000 that will include two new-build projects at its facilities in Lisburn. 

Specialising in providing the baking industry with innovative ingredients, it has grown its overall business by 33% across the Ireland since moving to its current site in 2011.

This year the company’s growth will continue, with extended warehouse facilities and a new test bakery. The warehouse will include four new loading bays and a refrigeration unit, while the test bakery will enhance the company’s ability to support customers with product development. Both projects will be completed and operational by June.

Tim Andrew, from Andrew Ingredients, said: “We are delighted to announce details of our investment plans for 2015. The new facilities at our Lisburn site will not only equip us with the ability to continue to deliver excellence to the baking industry across the island of Ireland, but will also help mark our milestone of 70 years in business.”

The family-owned company is celebrating its 70th anniversary in June.
