The Wakefield First Bondholder Scheme has welcomed its 100th member – HARIBO, the UK’s leading confectionery brand.
Boasting two sites within the Wakefield district, including a new, multi-million-pound facility in Castleford, HARIBO is a shining example of a business that continues to invest in the area; this commitment has been further extended through their support of the Bondholder Scheme and its role of promoting the district as a great place to visit, invest and live.
HARIBO is just one of the many companies that have joined Bondholders in recent months, with Farmer Copley’s, Britcon, TK Maxx, National Coal Mining Museum and PMG naming just a few.
Herwig Vennekens, Managing Director of HARIBO UK comments: “The Wakefield district has a great deal to offer; it’s location, infrastructure and people are just a few of the reasons why we chose to extend our footprint and invest in the area with a second facility in Castleford.
“We support the vision set by the scheme and look forward to joining Bondholders in promoting the district and all it has to offer.”
Adrian Spawforth, Chair of Wakefield Bondholders, comments: “We are really pleased to see so many local businesses have a shared vision and genuine passion for supporting the district and promoting it as a great place to visit, invest and live.
“This is a very exciting time for our district, which is very much open for business.”
