Oatcake factory turnover up

An expanding product range
Nairns Oatcakes has expanded its factory, workforce, product range and turnover. 

Nairns is one of the few production factories in Southside and Newington ward and is based in Peffermill Road.

It has opened a new production unit to produce a gluten free range of products.   The unit is at the nearby Prestonfield Park at the Peffermill Industrial Estate.

The workforce increased by two last year and a further 8 so far this year taking its complement to 125 staff.

Turnover is up, though profits are down in what has been a difficult year with rising costs of raw materials.  Further details here.
