Administrators are hoping for a quick sale of struggling bacon slicer and packer, St Helen’s Bacon Packing.
The St Helen’s-based business says it has suffered cash flow problems. The company has an annual turnover of £3.8m, 22 employees and a 400 sq m site.
Established since 1980, St Helen’s Bacon Packing has a national customer base of around 180 and exports about 9% of its production to Spain and Gibraltar.
