Abergavenny targets 120 per cent increase

The Abergavenny Fine Food Company aims to increase production of its goat's cheese range by 120% after receiving £1.2m in funding from Santander Corporate and Commercial. It will also increase the size of its current dairy facilities in Abergavenny to meet increased demand and to help the firm develop its business relationships with UK goat farmers, with the aim of processing over four million litres of milk per year. Established in 1987 by husband and wife Anthony and Pam Craske, Abergavenny Fine Foods has steadily grown and diversified into a major producer of high quality food products. It is now run by their son and daughter. Annual turnover has now grown to £17.16m and the firm counts Sainsbury's, Waitrose and Tesco among its clients. It recently began exporting to Australia and is making inroads into South Korea and Taiwan. Myrddyn Hughes, relationship director at Santander Corporate and Commercial, said: 'The Abergavenny Fine Food Company is an exceptional company that has developed strong business relationships in the farming community. We are delighted to be supporting the business as it looks to expand further.'
