There was a fire in part of Muntons Bridlington plant during the evening of 17th/18th November.
Local Fire Services arrived quickly at the scene with 8 Fire appliances and a high-level access platform and extinguished the fire. Thankfully there were no casualties.
The fire is not affecting operations at Muntons other site in Stowmarket.
Muntons have a robust Business Continuity system in place that has been tested annually and proven very effective. We expect the business to continue to run effectively whilst this aspect of our operations is being resolved.
The fire was in the processing area for malt pellets and dispatch and is in that area only. Our production is continuing. Muntons has two malting plants at Bridlington and neither was directly impacted by the fire, but there will be some temporary disruption to our normal operations whilst we re-establish the building and processing capabilities damaged in the fire.
Further information will be released over the next few days as we know more. For further information please contact:
