Aldomak see 50% sales increase as expansion begins

Family-run food producer Aldomak is set to increase sales by 50% as it embarks on a period of expansion of its product range.

The Glasgow-based firm, which uses ethically-sourced raw materials and has ambitions to become a zero-carbon enterprise, plans to post results revealing a turnover of £1.2m to April this year-up £1m in 2014-15.

Thanks to a series of substantial contract wins over the past year, the fudge, tablet and macaroon maker is now projecting sales of £1.9m for next year.

Managing director Dario Riccomini said: "This is a very exciting period for Aldomak. We have been working towards critical mass for some time and a lot of hard work is beginning to pay off as we anticipated.

"We have also strengthened the management team and we are investing in new systems and processes which will underpin a sustainable capability for further expansion."

The company currently supplies to major names including Stewart’s and Highland Croft, as well as having recently increased and re-focused its product range in Aldi.

Under its re-branding plans, it will retain the Aldomak name, but introduce new brands which will open up opportunities outside its traditional Scottish customer base.
