Greggs to build new food factory in south of England
Greggs, which operates 1,641 stores across the UK, said it was bringing forward its plans to build a second food manufacturing facility in the south of England and anticipates construction starting in mid-2013.
The company is already looking for suitable sites and will invest £30 - £35 million in building the new facility. Greggs said the factory will provide capacity for growth potential in wholesaling, franchising and new shop openings and will also reduce logistical costs.
In a statement the company said it anticipates opening around 100 net new shops during the current financial year, ahead of the 90 originally planned.
