Baked to perfection or set to crumble? This small-to-blockbuster-IPO company is upping the ante

Mrs Bectors Food Specialities operates in a sweet but tough sector, and is now in expansion mode  


About 15 years ago, a mediocre thriller movie called Hide and Seek was released. It had Robert De Niro in the lead and he gave a great performance, as expected, but someone else stole the show. It was nine-year-old Dakota Fanning. Even in an easily forgettable movie, she was memorable, more so because she had to share the screen with De Niro and make her presence felt. When newbies are up against titans and they perform exceptionally well, it becomes the stuff of fables. Another such story is that of Mrs Bectors.
