Premier Foods have just opened the largest cake production line in Europe with an investment of £20 million in robotic production processes.
Located at Barnsley the plant will produce 300 million cakes per year using 49 robots to perform all of the functions required from placing cake bases onto the line to packaging once the baking is complete. This investment has given major improvements in flexibility and has doubled plant capacity.
