With factories and bakeries stretching from the Scottish village of Twechar to Sheffield and Cardiff, there is a good chance that the Finsbury Food Group was responsible for the last cake you ate.
The group has a finger in many pies from luxury bites for the Thorntons brand to emoji and cartoon cakes for Disney. There’s also bread for Vogel’s and buns for KFC. Yet after a period of enforced cost-cutting within the business. Finsbury is not exactly in a sweet spot. Interim results out this week show increased profits and stable reserves, but will its products continue to sell like hot cakes?
