Honeytop boosts tortilla and naan production

10 June 2011

Honeytop Speciality Foods has completed a major expansion of its tortilla production capacity and has also increased its naan production facilities. Honeytop entered the tortilla market in 2008 by offering tortillas through the installation of one of the fastest tortilla lines.

The company has taken more than 50% of the UK own-label market for tortillas in this short space of time.

Honeytop supplies a variety of plain, flavoured and wholemeal wraps in a variety of sizes and packaging formats to retail grocery customers, foodservice organisations and third-party manufacturers.

Commenting on the expansion, Dr. Charles Eid, founding director of Honeytop said: “Due to high demand from customers, and as part of our continued investment for the future growth of our company we have recently increased our tortilla production capacity by a further 50%.

“Customer response has been very positive since we started production in this area and we plan to continue to grow our market share through innovation, and the continual production of superior quality wraps.”

Honeytop produces a range of top-quality plain, seeded and flavoured tortillas in a range of diameters, pack sizes and formats. It was the first to market with resealable zip-lock packaging and also developed a special recipe and a unique process that prevents its tortillas sticking together in the packet.

The expansion of Honeytop’s tortilla production is part of its continuous development programme. As part of this scheme, Honeytop has also expanded its production of chilled naan breads for the retail sector with the installation of a new production line including state-of-the-art spiral chillers.

It has also expanded production and packing capacity of its extended-life naans by 50% to further strengthen its market leadership position within this category.
