Plant-Powering Growth Through Investment for Major Expansion

We at Buttermilk are so pleased to announce that we have received a £852K investment to build a major 420sqm extension. This will increase the manufacturing capacity of our award-winning plant-powered chocolate bars - meaning more delicious choccy for everyone to enjoy.

Thanks to the UK Shared Prosperity Fund from the UK government, the £852,573 grant will enable us to consolidate two existing production facilities onto one site, create 14 quality jobs over the next two years and double production capacity.

This project is great news for the environment thanks to the installation of new energy-efficient power systems and reducing the number of lorry journeys down local Cornwall roads.

But most importantly, it ensures more local, quality employment in Cornwall. We are also investing in the development of a multi-skilled production team across our different kitchens that will benefit from training and development programmes.

The project supports the local economy and community providing local people with stable quality all year-round employment. We are deeply appreciative of the grant funding provided by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.


This project is part-funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. Cornwall Council has been chosen by Government as a Lead Authority for the fund and is responsible for monitoring the progress of projects funded through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

The UK Shared Prosperity Fund is a central pillar of the UK Government’s Levelling Up agenda and provides £2.6 billion of funding for local investment by March 2025. The Fund aims to improve pride in place and increase life chances across the UK by investing in communities and place, supporting local business, and people and skills.
