Melton Foods

In 1998 Samworth Brothers invested in £11m in a purpose built sandwich bakery in Melton Mowbray. This facility is dedicated to the production of a full range of quality chilled foods for Waitrose and Ginsters.
The 20-acre site is shared with Kettleby Foods and is set among beautifully landscaped grounds surrounded by picturesque Leicestershire countryside.
Melton Foods currently employs over 450 people making a diverse range of 130 quality products. These products range from sandwiches and wraps to party canapés.
A special walkway was included in the design of Melton Foods to allow visitors to view the entire length of the production line. This is a testament of the pride that Samworth Brothers has in it facilities, procedures, products and people.

I measure the success of my relationship with Silver Stone by their ability to meet my needs. They have taken the time to build a rapport and to really understand the business. They listen, deliver against promises, and provide quality advice and the very best customer care. Most importantly they find the right people quickly and effectively. Silver Stone have become true stakeholders in the business and I would not hesitate to recommend them.
