Ministry of cake

The UK Prime Minister says our chocolate fudge cake is ”delicious”, the Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson loved it so much it was ”eaten in a flash”, but it’s not just politicians who love us!

Ministry of Cake is one of the country’s leading manufacturers of UK produced hand finished cakes, puddings and desserts. Suppliers to cafés, restaurants and pubs; our customers include JD Wetherspoon, Hard Rock Café, Whitbread and TGI Friday. Recently we have begun exporting to a large cafe chain across Europe and have plans to expand into China in 2017.

We employ 400 people at our two factories in Taunton and Torquay, producing more than three million slices of cake a week. Voted 2016 Business of the Year at the PwC West awards and South West CEO of the year in the BVCA business awards, this rapidly expanding business turns over £30m annually and is growing at a rate of around 12% a year.

Not surprising then that Ministry of Cake was described by The Telegraph as a UK business ‘’growth champion’’ which is ”turbo charging the economy.”

In January 2017 we joined Mademoiselle Desserts, a €210m group employing more than 1,400 employees in eight production sites across France, the UK and the Netherlands. This secured jobs and future production for Ministry of Cake within Europe.

Ministry of Cake was recently praised by the Prime Minister in the House of Commons for our contribution to overall confidence in the UK economy and for helping to ‘unlock global trade’. She noted that the South West of England is: ”a very good place to do business.”
