Congratulations to our member, Deli Lites who have announced 20 new jobs thanks to a £250,000 investment in a new Innovation Hub and Major Refurbishment at its headquarters in Warrenpoint.
The Innovation Hub is a unique business space which will be used for product development workshops and demonstrations with clients. The new creative area also replicates the retail environment to showcase the company’s growing product range which has grown to include sandwiches, wraps, bespoké bowls, juices, salad bowls, flatbreads and hot eats as well as products from the in-house state-of-the-art artisan bakery.
The innovation-led business strategy will see Deli Lites expand into new International Markets with export orders for its baked goods and hot eats currently in the pipeline to Germany, Netherlands and the Middle East, particularly Dubai where customers are looking for high-quality products from trusted suppliers.
Speaking about the recent investment, Chief Executive, Brian Reid said:
“As a chef-led business which is focused on constantly developing new and exciting products and flavour combinations, innovation is at the heart of everything we do. This latest investment highlights our commitment to continued growth and development and our emphasis on client-focused servicing which we believe has helped us grow and become a trusted supplier to so many customers.
We’re excited about the next phase in the business, which is only possible thanks to the great team right across the organisation, from production operatives to delivery drivers. It’s this commitment to our people and their continued hard work which will enable us to maximise the hub’s potential and deliver even more award-winning products, use ingredients from trusted local suppliers to a global customer base.”
As well as the Innovation Hub, the investment includes a major refurb of the company’s headquarters and the addition of new offices.
