£55m Lincolnshire Ryvita factory set to open in October

A new £55 million Ryvita factory in Bardney is set to open in October.

The new factory, which will be creating 100 new jobs, will help expand production of Ryvita crispbreads and crackers.

The new site is expected to produce in the range of 750 million units per year.

Consultancy company Gleeds has been appointed to act as cost manager and sustainability consultant for Associated British Foods’ new scheme.

Company chief executive Paul Murphy previously said: “It is tremendously exciting that we are able to expand our operations by investing £55 million in this brand new facility in Bardney, Lincolnshire.

“The site will use state of the art technology to help expand production capacity for Ryvita and allow us to further explore opportunities for growth in the UK and our key export markets.

“We have a longstanding commitment to supporting British farmers and the environment. All the rye we use in Ryvita is grown in the UK by farmers we know and trust.”
