Over the coming weeks we will be saying goodbye to an old friend here at Knighton Foods.
Until 2014 Knighton Foods had its very own, onsite fire crew. The current appliance first registered in 1977 had been secured in the early 1990’s from Northern Ireland and was supported at its height with 12 members of Knighton Foods staff fully trained to provide safe operation.
Yesterday we welcomed a film crew on behalf of one of our customers. It’s always fantastic fun to show and tell people about what we do here at Knighton, along with celebrating the history of the site.
Today the new product development (NPD) team have been hard at work presenting to one of our customers. They have come up with some absolutely fantastic applications and flavours, you could almost have been mistaken for thinking that Willy Wonka himself was going to step through the door at any moment. Of course the day wasn’t all just fun, fun, fun the customer was looking to expand their current portfolio of products and the team were super excited to show just what they had achieved.
Wednesday 31st May saw the team at Knighton Foods celebrating the official opening of its brand new £120k Customer Innovation Centre. Opened by Mark Hughes – Procurement & Central Operations Director for Premier Foods, the centre has been designed to provide “an inspirational environment where free thinking, creativity and innovation can all come together”.
