Cofresh Snack Foods thanks Borough Council for support in recent £20million investment programme

Published on Monday, 17th June 2019

Cofresh, the UK’s leading Indian snack food manufacturer, has thanked NBBC for its support during the Company’s recent £20m expansion programme in Nuneaton.

It is estimated that around 100-150 jobs could be created as a result of the expansion which incorporated the purchase of a 140,000 sq ft warehouse on the Attleborough Fields Industrial Estate. The Council’s Economic Development Team helped the Company with the expansion, providing practical advice and assistance, with support from colleagues at the Coventry and Warwickshire LEP Growth Hub and the Warwickshire County Council investment team.

Priyesh Patel, Managing Director of Cofresh said:

“We are really grateful to NBBC staff for helping us through the expansion process in Nuneaton. The knowledge and experience they provided were invaluable. We found the advice on business rates particularly helpful. The Borough Council continues to support us as we prepare to get the new factory up and running.

“Of course, Nuneaton is a superb business location, being well placed within the UK and with excellent transport links. In addition to this, the support available to businesses from NBBC and other local agencies makes the area even more attractive for investors such as us.”

Cofresh supplies most major supermarkets, wholesalers and independents in the UK, and exports to more than 58 countries. The Company forms part of an impressive line-up of successful food manufacturers and retailers within the Borough, which also includes the national giants Dairy Crest and Holland & Barrett.

Cllr Julie Jackson, Leader of the Council said:

“Cofresh is a well-established player in the national food industry and it is wonderful that the Company has chosen to expand in Nuneaton.”

 “Economic development is right at the heart of the Council’s agenda - Nuneaton and Bedworth is very much open for business and we do everything possible to help local businesses grow and prosper. I am delighted that our assistance was of such value to Cofresh.”
