We have heard people say they wish they'd had access to a centre like this, when their food business was at that critical point of expansion. Simply because everything you need is in one place, for food innovation, presentation and production.

You can start by hiring test kitchens, tasting rooms and meeting spaces for one-off use. The Centre team will support you in making the most of the bespoke facilities, specialist innovation support and cluster membership. Their goal is to help secure the commercial futures of your food and drink concepts.
