Fresh Chip Production Facility Expansion

Bridlington – ERDF

Richardson & Sons Ltd

Richardson and Sons are a local family business who has supplied Bridlington with fruit and vegetables for over 75 years.  Keeping up to date with the needs of their customers they invested in a small scale fresh chip production facility in 2006.  Since then their fresh cut chips have become more and more in demand with local catering businesses and they have now met their capacity and are turning customers away.

This project is to increase the capacity of their current chip production by:

  • Upgrading machinery and enlarging the customer base
  • Making changes to potato peeling and bagging areas for reduced manual handling
  • Relocating chip line into a larger, purpose built area
  • Improving storage facilities for raw and final product
