A Cornish confectionery company has completed its biggest investment to date by moving all production to new premises.
The Buttermilk Confectionery Co invested £600k in the new site, tripling production space and creating six new jobs.
Husband and wife team David and Tracy Goad moved from London to take over the 50-year-old company from David’s parents in 2010.
Tracy Goad said: “This is a major milestone in the Buttermilk story and we’re really excited for the next chapter. We’re operating on a much larger scale but the core of what we do will always remain: we are an artisan producer, hand making our products in open copper pans with quality ingredients.”
The family-run business, which predominantly produces fudge, acquired the 1.75 acre site on the Bodmin Cooksland Industrial Estate in June 2014 for £350k. A further £250k was spent on its transformation and new machinery.
The new premises offer an improved production flow with a spacious layout and includes a new confectionery kitchen; showroom; warehouse; office space; and staff facilities.
