Alba Export Agencies bought the studio apartment in The Kyles last December, and now uses it as its base for its two-man online export operations.

The business works with UK and EC food manufacturers, including major names such as Mackie’s Crisps, Campbell’s shortbread and Buchanan’s sweets.

Its two employees work with brokers across North America who then deal with specific retailers.

AEA was originally launched in Edinburgh in 2006, and moved to the Lang Toun in 2017.

It bought the flat after previously renting office space in the town.

Andy Patton from the company said: “We started the application process in January.

“We have also had contact with the owners association and they seem relaxed with it.”

Operating online, the business has no customers or delivered to the premises.

A decision will be made in due course.
