Pastry maker goes into administration putting more than 60 jobs at risk


Pastry and ready meals manufacturer, Freshpack, which is based in Cheshire, has gone into administration putting more than 60 jobs at risk.

Liverpool-based Dunham Dean Advisory’s Matt Dunham has been appointed as administrator to the firm.

The administrators have confirmed that the company will continue to operate while a buyer is sought for the business, plans have also been revealed for the firm to be sold in a bid to save Freshpack jobs.

Speaking on the administration, Dunham, said: “Freshpack operates a fully equipped modern factory with a long-standing, skilled workforce and benefits from an established customer network.

“This provides a great opportunity for another manufacturer to extend their production facilities, develop new product lines and expand into new areas of the market.”
