Twenty jobs will be created at world foods manufacturer Regal Foods as part of the expansion, with the new warehouse the latest addition to the business’ headquarters on Wallis Street, Four Lane Ends.
Regal Foods manufactures a variety of different food products including traditional Asian snacks, British favourites and a range of different condiments.
Once completed, the new warehouse will provide additional storage space for raw materials, packaging and finished goods.
This will free up space in the existing 15,000 sq ft warehouse, which will enable an extension to Regal’s manufacturing arm, The Baling Company.
The aim is to increase efficiency and capability, allowing Regal to bring new products, due for release later this year, into development.
“We are very pleased with and excited about our new warehouse extension, as it is the first of its kind for Regal Foods”, said Regal’s Operations Director Absar Younis.
“The 20 new jobs it creates will be highly beneficial to the local community of Bradford.
“Our warehouse is a key part of our exciting 2020 business plans.
“Besides expanding our storage, it allows us to improve the range and quantity of our product selection.
“I’m very proud of our team as the company’s continuous growth over the years has allowed us to build this new facility, and thereby create new products for our customers to enjoy.”
Regal was set up by Younis Chaudhry after he invented some puff pastry fingers.
The pastries were an instant hit. Fairy cakes followed and, in a relatively short space of time, the business became a force to be reckoned with.
It has a multi-million-pound turnover, employs hundreds of staff and supplies to mainstream supermarkets like Morrisons, Asda, Tesco and larger independent stores.
The brand has grown to encompass around 300 products ranging from baked goodies to crisps, fruit juices, popcorn as well as sauces and spices.
