Keeping Bakeries Moving with Franklin Transfer Systems

Premier Foods Limited’s bakery site in Stoke produces millions of Mr. Kipling’s brand cakes and pies each year, as well as own-brand goods for most UK supermarkets.

As one of Britain’s biggest listed food companies, Premier Foods employs over 4,000 staff at 15 manufacturing sites and offices. Around 96% of what it sells is made in the UK from quality ingredients, sourced sustainably from British suppliers and farmers. The Stoke bakery site operates six production lines operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

L.B. Foster Automation & Materials Handling has a long history of working with Premier Foods. The company has previously provided proven Franklin Transfer Systems (FTS) to Premier Foods’ Eastleigh and Barnsley sites. The project at Stoke involved the successful design, manufacture, installation, and commissioning of the new Oven to Thermoform Transfer System.
