A VISIT to GR Wright & Sons’ new mill in Harlow provides the perfect insight into the past, present and future of milling in the UK reports bakeryinfo.co.uk
A walk up the stairs of the site’s offices offers a glimpse of the six-generation flour firm’s history, with photographs on the walls providing a sepia-tinged view of the company’s 150-plus years in Ponder’s End, Enfield.
David Wright, managing director, admits the decision to build the new facility in Harlow, north of its traditional base, wasn’t made before exploring other options.
“We looked at lots of ways to put a new plant on that site but you end up spending a lot of money and you still have a compromised site because you’ve got old buildings there that are protected and listed that you have to work around,” he explains. “So, in the end I decided that we’d go for it here.”
