150 jobs created at £12m Malton bakery

More than 150 jobs have been created at a £12m bakery in North Yorkshire.

The factory in Malton was built in a joint venture between Cranswick Foods and Yorkshire Baker.

Sausage rolls, quiches and pies will be produced at the site for retailers including Marks and Spencer.

It will be opened later by Cathy Chapman, Marks and Spencer's director of food product development and direction.

Jim Brisby, sales and marketing director at Cranswick Foods, said: "Hopefully this is only part of the story.

"We have built the factory to be future proof and I would like to see sales double and treble in the coming three to five years."
