Bolton North East MP Mark Logan found himself in flavour heaven when he visited Fazila Foods on a factory tour.
Mr Logan MP enjoyed a tour of the factory floor and during the visit met founder Fazila Malek and Andrew Barnes, Trading Director of James Hall & Co. Ltd.
From its manufacturing hub in The Valley, Bolton, Fazila Foods develops and creates a modern selection of delicious Halal foods, ranging from traditional Asian cuisine through to contemporary fusion snacks and ready meals.
Mr Logan MP learned about the company’s heritage from home cook, to entrepreneur enterprise and now leading manufacturer with some 60 staff and a 15,580 sq. ft. production facility.
He also turned his hand to making spring rolls on the production line and had the opportunity to savour the flavour of some tasty Fazilas favourites as well as taking away a packed lunch of products that can be found in SPAR stores across the North of England.
Mark Logan MP said: “What an honour to get inside the factory of one of Bolton’s tastiest food suppliers.
