All the latest recruitment agency news in Newport
Newport-based Clarks UK Ltd is the UK’s largest producer of maple syrup!! The Newport company thanks to Pancake Day is looking forward to great sales following another record year for the company.
The incredible demand for maple syrup – which will see sales of the lesser-known superfood triple before Shrove Tuesday – is an example of the extraordinary response for Clarks, as according to the latest Kantar data, now owns 68 per cent of the market share with plans to double the business over the next two years.
Clarks’ UK supplies all the big four supermarkets – 2,000 Tesco branches, and 500-plus Asda, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons stores. Discount retailer Lidl and online supermarket Ocado also now sell Clarks’ syrup.
More than 36,000 bottles of pure and blended Clarks Maple Syrup are produced and packaged each day at the company’s factory on the Queensway Meadow Industrial Estate in Newport, ensuring the country has plentiful syrup supplies. This figure rocketed to 45,000 on both January 28 and 29 – a record for Clarks.
