Throughout its century in the business, Cavan Bakery has kept a keen eye on the future. The company has recently started a new chapter by moving into a new home, a facility three times the size of its old one. Jeff Greenall, Cavan Bakery Director, gave baking+biscuit international a glimpse into the work behind the recent GBP 1.5 m investment and the company’s take on innovation.
Family-owned Cavan Bakery recently moved into a new, 15,000-sq ft baking facility on Lyon Road in Walton-on-Thames in December 2022, an expansion supported with GBP 1.5 m funding it secured from Lloyds Bank. It is three times the size of its previous bakery. The expansion means that Cavan can now increase production, with better streamlined operations. “The design and flow of the new bakery and segregation of different stages of production allow us to maintain more stability and control over our products and overall production,” says Jeff Greenall, director at Cavan Bakery.
