Northern Ireland bakery Around Noon is investing over half a million pounds to quadruple the size of its bakery operations due increased demand from customers across Ireland and the UK.

The Newry-based bakery is an award-winning producer of bespoke and premium treats under its own Sweet Things brand and for high street retailers and independent stores across Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and operators within the travel sector in the UK.

The investment will involve the acquisition of a 10,000 square foot unit that adjoins the bakery’s existing premises in the Greenbank Industrial Estate, along with new equipment.

“Around Noon Bakery continues to go from strength to strength, experiencing growing demand from new and existing customers,”​ said Gareth Chambers, CEO of Around Noon.

“The investment we are making will allow the bakery to significantly increase capacity and enable it to produce a wider range of products.”
