Cofresh Snack Foods expands to second site
UK-based Cofresh Snack Foods acquired an additional food production and warehousing facility to cater for significant growth and expansion.
An investment of approximately £20m over the next 18 months will enable Cofresh to split its snack production between two sites and increase annual turnover to more than £100m. The company’s current site in Leicester will continue to specialise in traditional Indian snacks, while the new facility at Nuneaton will be dedicated to the manufacture of its Eat Real ‘healthier snacking’ brand to cater for the growing demand for free from snacks. The new site will bring the company’s total production and warehousing ‘footprint’ to just under 400,000 sq ft.
“We’re delighted to be taking this hugely significant step in the development of our business,” said Cofresh managing director Priyesh Patel. “Nuneaton’s central location is well-placed for our customer base and offers a great infrastructure and easy access from our primary location in nearby Leicester, while the site itself is perfect for our immediate needs and offers great potential for our ambitious business growth.”
