EHL Ingredients invests £1m in new site

17 March 2019

In a bid to keep up with growing customer demand for its products EHL Ingredients, a supplier of international food ingredients, has expanded its premises and invested £1million in a new 8,000 square foot site on the Broadstone Industrial Estate, Reddish, Stockport. 

This is the company’s third unit on the estate, taking the total space to 40,000 square feet. The new site houses new machinery, including a vertical form filler which fills pillow bags and tubs for dried herbs and spices, seeds and powders, as well as other products. It will allow the company to process greater volumes of food ingredients.
 
In addition to the new premises the company is celebrating several key achievements – in the last 12 months it has launched a new foodservice brand, Lähde, and once again achieved Class A BRC (British Retail Consortium) accreditation in its recent audit. 

Commenting on the new facility, Tasneem Alonzo, joint managing director at EHL Ingredients, said: “We’ve outgrown our capacity in terms of storage, staff, machinery, administration and loading areas so needed a space to allow us to expand the business longer term. We decided to stay on the same industrial estate instead of moving our whole premises so when this unit came up, we were keen to review it. 

 “Over the last 12 months we have been taking orders for larger quantities which means we need to increase capacity. The new site will allow us to process more orders and higher volumes, more efficiently and quickly and the installation of the new machinery will enhance production and allow us to continue to innovate further. 

 “The food ingredient sector is certainly in a period of growth and with the rise in popularity of organic, free-from, vegan and vegetarian foods, we are continuously innovating to bring retailers, brands, manufacturers and caterers the right ingredients to suit consumer trends.” 

The new site became fully operational in February this year and is already helping to enhance production and efficiency.
