It was a symbol of Ancoats’ remarkable rejuvenation. But now the company behind much-loved bakery Trove has gone into liquidation with more than £1.6m of debt and troubling claims over its pension duties.

The mini-chain started out in Levenshulme in 2011 before expanding to outlets in Manchester city centre, Ancoats and Wilmslow, along with industrial premises in Heaton Chapel where the sourdough, croissants and sausage rolls it was famed for were baked.

But, on Friday (May 31), a ‘forfeiture notice’ was posted on the door of the flagship branch at Murray Street, Ancoats.

And now, Ethan Davies reports, it can be revealed the parent company, Two Hexagons Ltd, owes £1,652,851.82 to creditors, according to a statement of affairs posted on Companies House on the same day as a winding up petition.
