TEN new jobs have been created at an Enniskillen pizza factory with the announcement of a £1 million deal to supply Musgrave Retail Partners in Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic with a new premium range of stonebaked pizza.

Crust & Crumb, based in Derrylin, have developed the range of pizzas specifically for Musgrave and its SuperValu stores. All pizzas are hand-stretched, topped with quality ingredients from local suppliers and stonebaked for an authentic taste.

“We are catering for consumers’ growing expectations for the same quality taste from their food, as they would from a restaurant or takeaway, but at much better value and convenience,” said Musgrave’s NI trading manager, Julie Cherry.

“At Musgrave we endeavour to work with local suppliers where possible and are delighted to award Crust and Crumb this significant contract,” she added.

Mark McCaffrey of Crust and Crumb said: “We pride ourselves on being one of Ireland’s leading manufacturers of fresh pizza and pizza bases for the retail and food service sectors.”

“This deal represents a significant investment in our company, growing our team further with the creation of 10 new jobs.”
