LOCAL MP & SNP CANDIDATE TO VISIT HATTON BAKERY

Friday, 29 January 2010

Banff & Buchan MP Alex Salmond and SNP Westminster candidate Eilidh Whiteford will visit Murdoch Allan & Sons, Station Road, Hatton on Monday 1 February at 11.00am.
Managing Director Paul Allan will greet the visitors and brief them on latest product development before touring the factory and meeting staff. Peterhead South & Cruden councillor Stephen Smith will also be in attendance.

United Biscuits announced plans to close their factory in Hatton in September 2001. Following a campaign led by the local MP, the factory was saved from closure and taken over by Buchan firm Murdoch Allan & Sons, safeguarding over 100 years of bakery tradition and jobs in the village.

The factory is just one of a number in Banff & Buchan which faced closure in the 1990s and early 2000s which were saved from closure thanks to the efforts of Alex Salmond MP, other notable examples being Buchan Meat Producers in Turriff (now Woodhead Brothers), and a fish factory employing over 600 people in Fraserburgh.
