Funding for seaweed pizza firm and MHA Henderson Loggie
All about the base: backing for pizza workers
The only pizza manufacturer to use seaweed in a range of bases is expanding and upgrading its production capability following a £152,000 regional selective assistance (RSA) grant from Scottish Enterprise.
Family run business The Victor Pizza Company supplies products direct to the wholesale food market and the funding deal will create 15 full-time jobs and safeguard seven over the next three years.
Victor Pizza works with MCR Pathways, Young Enterprise Scotland, schools and colleges to inspire young people from the local area to consider career opportunities in the food and drink industry.
Michael Cannon, head of grant appraisal at Scottish Enterprise said: “Victor Pizza is a great example of an inclusive employer investing in its workforce. I am very pleased that Scottish Enterprise has provided an RSA grant and continued advice and support via the Scottish Manufacturing Advisory Service to support their growth ambitions.
