Inflight food supplier expands capacity

07 April 2011

Artisan sweets and savouries producer, Barton & White, has expanded its production facility with the help of food industry construction specialist, Project Link

The in-flight food supplier, which employs 45 people, has more than doubled the area of its Leicestershire premises to over 1,000 sqm. The addition of two mezzanine floors has provided extra storage, high care and low care production areas, packaging rooms, chill rooms and a blast freezer.

Barton & White supplies the hospitality and retail sectors, as well as travel industry clients, such as BMI and Thompson. The new capacity will help meet increased demand for its products.

Managing director Craig Barton said: “We are very pleased with the service provided by Project Link, which covered all aspects of the build, including design, obtaining building control approval and construction.

“Their knowledge of food businesses like ours meant that we could carry on our work while the expansion was in progress. We are currently talking to them about a further extension to our premises.”

Project Link, which is based at Avonmouth, near Bristol, is part of the Gilcrest Group. Managing director, Darren Williams, said: “We worked both as designer and main contractor on this prestigious contract, which we won largely as a result of recommendation.
