Speaking afterwards, Dr Whiteford said:
“Naturally, I am pleased to hear that those who currently work at the bakery will keep their jobs, and that further opportunities may arise when the business moves to its new premises. As part of my visit, I was able to view the plans for the new bakery. The building is set to be truly innovative, and I would like to wish Fraserburgh Development Trust the best of luck in their funding applications.
“I look forward to seeing the business develop in years to come. And I look forward to enjoying John Smith’s butteries long into the future!”
