Essential pours £1m into gravy factory

Essential Cuisine has opened a £1m production facility at its headquarters in Winsford, Cheshire, bringing most of its production in-house and creating 15 jobs in the area.

The 1,500sq m facility is an expansion of the pre-existing plant of the British producer of gravy, stocks, demi-glaces and glaces.

Nigel Crane, managing director of Essential Cuisine, said: "The new facility offers a real statement of our intent to grow as a business. Such growth won't come at the expense of our core ethos as a committed UK manufacturer, which is why we have looked to recruit and train people from across the local community.

"Not only will the new space mean quicker fulfilment times for our customers and an improved visibility of supply chain, it will also give us more space to create."
