A key objective of the rebrand was to highlight the company’s heritage in traditional baking and its use of original recipes.“Being a family-run business, we will always be protective of the legacy our grandfathers left us, but we also understand that times change and even a logo has a shelf life,” said Michael Ingle at the time.In its latest full-year financial statement filed at Companies House, for the year to 30 June 2018, the company reported turnover of £13.1m, up from £12.6m the previous year. It made a loss after tax of £165,000 compared to a £439,000 loss in 2017.The company attributed the loss to the “continued challenging trading environment”.last_img read more
