Nestlé has invested £800,000 in new machinery at its York manufacturing site to produce a range of new biscuits.

The confectionery giant has bolstered its KitKat Sense range with the addition of three new flavours: salted caramel; millionaire’s shortbread, and choc chip cookie dough.

The new range will produced at the York site which was already manufacturing a range of two and four finger KitKats and KitKat Chunky bars.

“The capability to produce our new KitKat Senses biscuits has been developed by our York-based innovations team in record time,” said Richard Martin, Nestlé Confectionery Technical Manager.

“The £800,000 investment we have made in our York factory has further strengthened our KitKat operations within the UK and provides us with additional capabilities for the future.”
