Fast-growing meal kit provider HelloFresh is to set up a base at Nuneaton in Warwickshire.
It will be the second UK production facility for the global firm.
HelloFresh, which delivers meal-kits with fresh ingredients to homes across the country, has leased 230,384 sq. ft. of logistics space at Goodman’s Nuneaton 230 development off the A444 at Bermuda Park.
The site will receive produce and packaging from local and national suppliers, assembling the fresh ingredients in the meal kits and distributing these to consumers across the country.
HelloFresh chose the site for its central location.
Nigel Dolan, development director at Goodman, said: We’re proud to welcome HelloFresh to our Nuneaton 230 development.
Its innovative business model leads the way in both the healthy home cooking and subscription service revolution and we’re pleased to be able support the growth of its UK production and fulfilment network, Dolan said.
The facility will provide frozen, chilled and ambient storage capacity, and highly flexible warehouse space to suit its production and packing methods.
With the development now complete, we look forward to seeing HelloFresh benefit from the property’s best in class specification, combined with its excellent transport links and local employment opportunities, Mr Dolan added.
He said, these include a large labour pool consisting of three million people within 20 miles of Nuneaton town centre, with Bermuda Park railway station directly serving the site and providing a great option for employees to travel to and from work.
Councillor Julie Jackson, leader of Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council, said: We’re thrilled to see Goodman welcome HelloFresh to this prime logistics development at Bermuda Park, living up to its promise of delivering a quality space for business that takes advantage of our excellent connectivity.
The development supports our Transforming Nuneaton initiative with Warwickshire County Council, geared at driving economic growth, attracting additional investment and realising new business opportunities for the local area, she said. We’re excited to see HelloFresh benefit from the rich employment opportunities and prime position of Bermuda Park.
