Relocation to boost efficiencyThis article was originally published in Foodnews
STOCKLEY's Sweets based in Lancashire, England has received an injection of cash from wholesalers Morris and Son. The wholesalers took over in November 2009, saving the 90-year-old firm from administration and securing 38 jobs. It has now invested GBP200 000 and will be moving the manufacturing and packaging process to Blackburn. The new factory will allow the company to streamline operations, and reduce transport and duplicated costs, improving efficiency. The core product range includes cakes, confectionery, snacks, soft drinks, toiletries and household products.
