Noble Foods is to open a new production facility for its Gü Puds in the UK town of Bishop’s Stortford next year, with the creation of around 100 jobs.
The company said work has already started on the 100,000 sq ft facility, which is expected to open in the summer and will also be used for technical, supply chain and warehouse functions.
The new facility “marks the next chapter of Gü’s expansion plans and will use the latest supply chain techniques”. the company said.
Sarah Baldwin, managing director of Gü Puds, said: “Not only does the new site give us room to grow, it’s located close to our London HQ and near to the M11 motorway making it an excellent logistics hub.”
There is, however, uncertainty about the future of the existing Gü Puds site in Walthamstow in east London. A local newspaper has said the setting up of the site in Bishops Stortford will mean Gü Puds will move out of the Walthamstow plant.
Asked to confirm if Gü Puds will leave the facility in Walthamstow, a spokesperson for the company said: “”The long-term plan is for the Bishop’s Stortford site to be the lead production facility. Gü staff are being kept fully in the loop on the growth and expansion plans for the business.”
