Star Cottage Bakery has gone into administration after just six months.

Administrator PCR said the business, which was formed last June when it bought Tindale & Stanton, part of Bakery Products, out of adminstration, was undercapitalised due to the previous insolvency.

Of the 84 staff, 59 continue to be employed. “We are in negotiations with an interested party with a view to the sale of the business as an ongoing concern,” said PCR.
