Consolidated Bakeries, the makers of Purity and Miss Birdie brands, is expanding their factory and building a new warehouse at their plant on Red Hills Road, through an estimated $20 million project.

This move, which commenced in the second quarter of 2017, is part of plans to increase the productivity of the factory and improve its efficiency.

As part of the expansion plan, additional bakery equipment has been purchased, and will be installed in the coming quarters. The first phase of this project is expected to be completed within the coming quarter.

According to the Chairman Vincent Chang, “The aim of this construction is to improve the efficiency of the plant, specifically in the area of receival and delivery of raw materials and finished products.” He went on to explain that there are also plans to install a receival dock for improved logistics.

Consolidated Bakeries has been providing Jamaicans with baked goods made since 1957.

 The company’s mission is to produce high quality and wholesome products, with the least amount of chemical additives at the most affordable price.
