Foodservice bakery provider, Kara, which is part of the Finsbury Food Group, has invested in excess of £1m back into its Manchester site.

It has said that the ‘major’ investment will bring about an improvement to production efficiency and will help the bakery increase its capabilities.

Robin Mountain, business unit director at Kara, said:“This investment marks the beginning of a really exciting time for us at Kara and it’s fantastic to see the completion of a replacement Lanham plant proofer. Improvements to the production plant not only means that we’ll be able to produce a higher quantity of products in a shorter space of time but also provides an opportunity for Kara to grow and expand further.”

The first wave of improvements has gone towards bolstering the efficiency of Kara’s Lanham line, where the baker’s floured baps and seeded deli rolls are made.

A ‘significant’ part of the funds has been invested in the Lanham Proofer, which has included the replacement of the proofer enclosure, air conditioning system and hydraulic drive pack.

All of the modifications will result in a ‘more effective and integrated functioning syste to improve quality and consistency’ as well as to reduce lost time and meet efficient production standards.

Further investment will see Kara improve its main bakery ventilation systems and the replacement of one of the three spiral freezers, which will further increase capacity for the future.
