Pioneer Foods opens new Bokomo facility in England

| On the move

Pioneer Foods, a leading South African food company, is making its mark in the United Kingdom with the official opening of its new Bokomo UK facility in Orton Southgate, England, last month.

Situated less than two kilometres from the previous Bokomo UK factory, the new facility has been built from scratch and was designed specifically to fit the requirements of a breakfast cereal business.

“This new facility allows us to significantly increase our capacity as we continue to produce the popular and high-quality Granola, Crunch, Crisp, Muesli and Porridge breakfast cereals that Bokomo UK is known for,” says John Hiles, CEO of Bokomo UK.

“Of all the new features, the potential to further expand our operation is perhaps the most exciting. With enhanced capacity as a result of focused production lines and world-class packing capabilities, the business has space to grow and drive further value for the Pioneer Group’s UK operations.”

Construction on the modern facility was completed in May 2016.

“The old facility had reached capacity and restricted Pioneer International’s growth ambitions. Not only does the new facility enable further growth, it has also passed the most stringent customer audits in the UK. With these credentials in place, we are well positioned to focus on growing our share of the UK breakfast cereal market,” says Thushen Govender, executive for international, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions.
