Artisan chutneys, preserves and sauces manufacturer The Bay Tree is to expand its foodservice product range.
To help sustain and promote ongoing growth, the Somerset-based producer has installed a new three head production line at its factory. The equipment, which cost £250,000, will improve efficiency and streamline the production process.
Founder Emma Macdonald (pictured) explained: "Scaling up our operations in no way compromises the ethos that the company has been built on. We continue to make homemade style foods and that's down to a dedicated team that are very much hands on in the creation of The Bay Tree's entire range.
"We've enjoyed sustained growth over a number of years and I am very keen to ensure that the business evolves and that we embrace new challenges and continue to introduce The Bay Tree's explosion of flavours to a wider audience."
