It involved Chalcroft dismantling the building’s façade, creating a new cladded frontage, converting the existing loading bay into a food preparation area and installing a new engineered floor and wash-down facilities.

The conversion project has provided Jordans & Ryvita with an additional 280m2 at its Dorset factory and will aid the continued growth of the iconic crispbread product range.

Ed Getley, Chalcroft contracts manager, said: “The work completed during this conversion project will play an important role in further improving The Jordans & Ryvita Company’s food preparation operation.

“Chalcroft has worked closely with Jordans & Ryvita, taking care to ensure the work will provide the most effective facilities. I am very pleased to see the project successfully completed on schedule.”
