Kendal Mint Cake manufacturer slips into administration

26 February 2016

One of the oldest manufacturers of Kendal mint cake has closed its doors after slipping into administration for a second time.

Creative Confectionery, which own Wilson’s Kendal Mint Cake, laid off all its staff and stopped production on February 12. 

The business was originally founded in 1913, and was bought out of a pre-pack administration in May 2015.

The South Lakeland-based company, which operates from leasehold premises in Holme, appointed RSM Restructuring Advisory as administrators.

Jeremy Woodside, RSM partner and one of the administrators said: “Unfortunately due to significant cash flow difficulties the company has been placed in administration. 

“Currently the Administrators are marketing the Company’s assets including the Kendal Mint Cake brand. Interested parties can contact the administrators for more information on 0161 830 400.”
