Bakery owner in new move

A BAKERY company which took over Scarborough’s Woodhead business has rescued another firm from administration.

Bakery Products Limited – who took over Woodhead in April saving 280 jobs – has now bought north-east based Hobson Foods Limited which traded under the Tindale and Stanton brand.

A spokesman said: “Tindale and Stanton will complement and enhance the current range offered by the Woodhead Bakery.

“The two businesses have strong synergies in that each is well known and respected in its respective geographical area with a focus on quality, range and value for money.

“This is the start of a brand new era for the business which has a bright future.”

Bosses at Bakery Products bought the Scarborough bakery and 11 shops, with a further 18 retail outlets bought by Scarborough bakers Cooplands.
