Cranswick Purchase 3 Flow Wrappers to Assist in New Venture

by Lacy Cooper | Mar 27, 2013

Cranswick are starting food production with premium pastry product manufacturer Yorkshire Baker next month as part of a new business venture. They will be packing their products using Rose Forgrove Merlin HSEs from HayssenSandiacre.



A new business division within Cranswick has been set up called the Cranswick Gourmet Pastry Company, which will not only see an increase in jobs, but also a greater presence in the food market.  Cranswick who produce premium pastry products, such as sausage rolls and pies were keen to get the new project moving along quickly.

HayssenSandiacre is supplying Cranswick with two Merlin HSE loan machines, while their new machines are being built to ensure that Cranswick will be able to meet their production requirements.

Rollo Thompson - Managing Director at Continental Fine Foods/ Yorkshire Baker said “Our range of Yorkshire Baker products is already available from some deli counters, but we will be up-scaling our production, so that we can supply to even more delis and shops in the future.”

“We opted for Rose Forgrove Flow Wrappers because of their extensive experience working within the bakery industry and HayssenSandiacre’s reputation for producing packaging machines of superior quality. The machines are extremely well built and lend themselves well to our working environment.  We didn’t want to stop production, so it was great that HayssenSandiacre offered us the opportunity to loan two machines for the duration of the new machine build.” 

The Merlin HSE Flow Wrapper is flexible and dependable with an extensive machine range, which makes it ideal for packing a variety of different products. The Merlin HSE is available with a variety of options, such as stainless steel construction, pin type perforator, infeed extensions and gusseting units.
