The Association was very sad to hear that one of our members, Crantock Bakery, has ceased trading and been placed in administration.
Crantock Bakery had been a longstanding member of the Association and contributed to the successful application for PGI status for the Cornish pasty.
It will be a big shock to the bakery industry in Cornwall to learn that this has happened to such a substantial manufacturer and employer, with over 100 jobs thought to have been lost.
We will be doing everything we can to assist those who have been made redundant and we are collating details of job opportunities our members have available. We are already aware of dozens of vacancies, including opportunities for crimpers, packers, production staff; admin, finance and payroll staff; hygiene staff; maintenance/cleaning; along with management positions in production and product development.
Anyone affected and looking for work can contact us by email: [email protected] telling us what type of job you are interested in and where you live so that we can direct you to the right people. and keep an eye on our website and our social media channels for updates.
