The Heygate Group has seven flour mills on three sites – Bugbrooke, Tring, Hertfordshire, and Downham Market, Norfolk, and employs 900 people, compared with just 20 in 1935. The sites mill more than 400,000t of wheat each year and produce over 5,500t of flour every week. The Animal Feed division produces more than 100,000t annually.
Heygate’s Fine Lady bakery, with plants in Banbury and Manchester, is one of the most modern in Europe, with the capacity to bake more than three million loaves a week, plus a wide range of morning goods and speciality products. The company is also involved in farming in Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire and Norfolk.
