A FOOD manufacturer has praised a Botwnnog rural enterprise centre for keeping jobs locally.

Lynne King, the founder of yogurt and dessert manufacturing business, Daffodils brand whose products are sold in Tesco and Asda, has praised Canolfan Fenter Congl Meinciau for enabling her business to grow.

A former commercial director in a dairy business, Lynne started her business in 2011 from the walk-in wardrobe at her home in Morfa Nefyn.

When Daffodil Foods outgrew that space, Lynne was able to keep the business local, by taking space at Congl Meinciau.

Daffodil Foods produces cultured dairy products, yogurts and desserts under its own brand and for supermarkets’ own brands. A major selling point is the Welsh provenance of the foods.

Today, Daffodil products are stocked in national pub chains and all of the hospitals in Wales, as well as with Morrisons and Ocado.

Canolfan Fenter Congl Meinciau is owned and run by charitable housing association Grwp Cynefin.
