A UK distributor of sports nutrition products has been awarded a grant so that it can bring production in house and open a new manufacturing facility ahead of the Olympics in 2012.

The Northwest Regional Development Agency awarded a £126,750 Grant for Business Investment (GBI) to Denton-based CNP Professional, providing part of the funds to pay for a manufacturing facility in Hyde, also in Greater Manchester. GBI is part of Solutions for Business, a government package of publicly funded business support designed to help companies start and grow.

“CNP is a small, but growing, business that has ambitious, yet realistic, growth plans. Key to the successful achievement of these is creating our own, food-grade standard manufacturing facility,” ​said Paul Vandrill, finance director, CNP Professional.

“Working with specialist advisors to the food industry, Integrated Food Projects, we were able to source an ideal site in Hyde, and specify the fit-out and equipment needed to achieve the standard required.”

The new facility will allow the company to increase its range. Products, including flapjacks and protein bars, are due to roll off the production line in April.
