Organic pasty and pie specialist Jones Organic has announced plans to expand its production facilities, adding 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."
