‘Investment’ is a big word for us. It’s a big word for everybody – that’s a given – but the word is always on the tips of our tongues. In 2015 we brought our Cardiff and Pontypool sites together in Wattsville, moving all of our processes under one large roof a quarter of a mile. long, consolidating 50 years of business and setting us up for many years to come. Since that point we have continued to invest in our business and people even throughout the last few testing years, with capital investment in our plant – a solar array, 2 additional processing lines - and continued investment in staff.
We’ve built a staff gym and turned part of our site into a sustainability garden. We have partnered with a social enterprise to establish a network of bee hives in the Sirhowy valley and we even have a colony of our own. It is both witticism and truism to say that we have been - and remain to be - 'very busy bees'.
These are things that matter to us; business viability, drive, people and stewardship.
