North Wales Weekly News - - FRONT PAGE -

A WELSH gov­ern­ment min­is­ter got to grips with the finer points of cake dec­o­rat­ing when she paid a visit to a bak­ery last Thurs­day.

Fi­nance and gov­ern­ment business min­is­ter Jane Hutt went to Si­wgr a Sbeis in Llan­r­wst to hear first hand how the business has ben­e­fit­ted from the Ire­landWales EU Pro­gramme 2007-14.

She found that with the help of business train­ing from an EU-funded project, Si­wgr a Sbeis launched a new “bake in the box” prod­uct range.

The bak­ery was launched by school friends Rhian Owen and Rhian Wil­liams in Fe­bru­ary 1989.

The business be­gan bak­ing and sell­ing a range of cakes from a shop in Llan­r­wst with a work­force of only three.

To­day the business is lo­cated in a mod­ern 2,400 square me­tre bak­ery in Llan­r­wst, and makes a wide range of award-win­ning cakes, desserts and savoury quiches for cus­tomers across Wales.

The new Ire­land Wales Co-op­er­a­tion Pro­gramme 2014-2020, worth £80 mil­lion, has re­ceived ‘in prin­ci­ple’ agree­ment from the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion, with for­mal ap­proval of the pro­gramme ex­pected within the next few weeks.
