Our Bakeries

Park Cakes operates from two production sites located in Oldham and Bolton. Employee numbers flex between 1,500 and 2,000 (~1,100 at Oldham and ~400 at Bolton) addressing our day-to-day requirements and allowing us to maximise seasonal opportunities.

Both sites share customers but their products point at different categories, with a strong portfolio of around 100 all year round product lines and a further 30 seasonal products.

Park Cakes consistently achieve industry-leading scores of 8/10 from regular benchmark testing of new and existing products, independently assessed by the technical unit at The Campden & Chorleywood Food Association.

Park Cakes has strong product and technical heritage and over the last decade has become one of the key innovators in new product development. Mini Bites, now a £100m category, chocolate Melt in the Middle hot eating puddings and restaurant quality chocolate desserts are examples of Park Cakes market leading introductions.
