Winning Blend increases turnover by £9m

Thursday February 14th, 2013

Welsh food manufacturer, Winning Blend, has increased turnover by £9m with support from the Economic Growth Fund.

A recent £3.3m investment by Winning Blend Limited, based within Llantrisant Business Park in Pontyclun, was supported by £300,000 from the Economic Growth Fund.

This expansion has increased production and boosted turnover by £9m, with new business secured from Iceland, Aldi, Lidl and Poundland, as well as additional business from Tesco.

It will also benefit the local supply chain, as Welsh Pantry sources ingredients from local producers.

Winning Blend, trading as The Welsh Pantry, specialises in producing savoury products and ready meals for both its own label and supermarket own brands.
The recent funding has also allowed The Welsh Pantry to invest in some of the most sophisticated bakery and packing equipment in the UK.

The expansion and new jobs have been welcomed by Business Minister Edwina Hart.

She said: “It is great news to hear that companies like The Welsh Pantry are expanding, winning new business and creating jobs through support from the Economic Growth Fund. I hope to hear of many more success stories with the launch of the second phase of the Fund which has the potential to create and safeguard hundreds of jobs across Wales.”
