Haydens Bakery

Haydens bakery on a roll as operations increase

Wiltshire-based Haydens Bakery, which produces premium bakery & desserts for leading retailers has just completed a substantial investment programme, which includes the upgrade of its bakery with state-of-the-art equipment and employee facilities. This has been supported by capital investment experts Integrated Food Projects (IFP).

Commenting on the work, Philip Chatfield, CEO at Integrated Food Projects, said:

“The site in Devizes had undergone piecemeal changes over the years, but the owners wanted to create a modern and efficient manufacturing base. This was an extremely demanding programme which we are delighted we delivered.”

“Not only has the bakery been able to fulfil new customer demand, it now has one of the most innovative bakeries in the country added Matthew Carr, Client Solutions Director at IFP.

Headquartered in Kegworth in Leicestershire, Integrated Food Projects delivers and manages investment strategies, helping manufacturers with everything from evaluation and design to implementation and transition. Since being established in 2001, it has worked with a raft of retailers and suppliers.


Integrated Food Projects have partnered with Kettleby Foods on a number of high-profile multi-million pound capital projects since 2003/4, helping the business to develop and grow. Throughout that time they have provided cost-effective and efficient solutions on development projects both at our existing ready meals production facility and also in creating a new satellite facility. The projects at our existing facility were managed without impact on our ability to service our own clients, and all projects have been delivered within budget, in a timely fashion and to the requisite standards of safety and quality. Their team work ethos and professional approach ensure successful projects and I would utilise Integrated Food Projects in the future without hesitation.

- Jarrod Thorndyke, Production Director

I have worked with Integrated Food Projects on many capital expenditure projects since 2004, the latest being the development of the new plot of land adjacent to our main site. They successfully employed a project delivery process to ensure the integration of a leased modular building solution with the development of the site infrastructure to improve logistics and Health and Safety. Their staff are always positive and enthusiastic and have fostered a team-work approach ensuring another successful project delivered. I look forward to working with them again in the near future.
