Dunfermline-based Wm Stephen (Bakers) is to move to a new 32,000sq ft bakery in Dunfermline Business Park at the start of 2008.

MD André Sarafilovic said : "We have outgrown our current premises, which has stood us in good stead for the past 134 years, and have been actively searching for a suitable location for some time."

The fitting-out of the new bakery will begin soon and the company plans to move into the new site in January 2008. Sarafilovic said: "This investment will facilitate growth across all our divisions: retail, franchise operation, Stephens Direct and wholesale.
