Three slices was said to provide a third of the daily 5g of prebiotic needed to boost digestive health.Greggs announced a nationwide push on recycling, in a bid to cut landfill costs. A recycling programme was to be introduced at 11 Greggs divisions over the next three years, following trials at its Treforest division in Wales. Measures to be introduced included organic waste recycling machines, which cut the volumes of waste sent to landfill. The trial was set to save the Treforest division £35,000 a year in landfill costs. Rank Hovis bought Finedon’s Mill, renaming it Rank Hovis Wellingborough.
