SIR Nicholas Soames MP paid a visit to a manufacturer of environmentally friendly cleaning products.

Accompanied by the company’s managing director Angela Gill, the Mid Sussex MP was given a tour of Bio-Productions’s offices and laboratory on the Victoria Business Park in Burgess Hill where he had the chance to see the factory’s production line first-hand.

Throughout the visit, Angela and operations manager Chris Freeman showed the diverse products that make up the Bio-Productions catalogue, which has significantly expanded since business began in 1984.

She said: “Sir Nicholas was really impressed that our products are all developed and manufactured at this one site in Burgess Hill.

“It’s quite uncommon for a company of our size in this industry to do everything in Britain, but we’re really proud that we have the capacity and capability to develop, pack, and label products under one roof.”

Sir Nicholas Soames said: “I was tremendously impressed by what I saw at Bio-Productions. It is an outstanding business and I wish the team all the best.”
