More than 100 staff have been made redundant at Bakery Products, which fell into administration earlier this month.

It was formed after the company behind the short-lived Haldanes and Ugo supermarket chains – controlled by Arthur Harris – bought part of bakery Woodheads out of administration in April 2011.

The latest administration is being overseen by John Russell and Andy Wood of The P&A Partnership, which also sold the Woodheads business to Bakery Products.

“We have kept Bakery Products going all week in a bid to find a buyer for it as a going concern,” they said in a statement.

“Regrettably, that has not been possible. We were left with no choice other than to close the bakery. I would like to thank those staff who have helped us to keep trading in difficult circumstances.”

A second bakery, Tindale & Stanton, which was bought out of administration by Bakery Products in November last year, is still trading but is also in administration.
