East Yorkshire MP, Sir Greg Knight has officially opened the new manufacturing suite at Bee Health, a vitamin and supplement manufacturer based at Carnaby Industrial Estate near Bridlington.

Sir Greg performed the opening ceremony at the extended premises and then formally launched the new production line by switching on the company’s new £500,000 vitamin production machine.

Sir Greg was given a tour of the Bee Health factory by company Chief Executive Steve Ryan.

Sir Greg said: “This a very impressive operation and I am delighted to see this independent manufacturing company thriving here in the East Riding and successfully competing with manufacturers from overseas.”

Sir Greg was told that a new multi-million pound contract had been won by Bee Health from a leading retail chain of health shops and this has created new jobs locally.
