The Food Works Open days, 6 – 8 October

28th September 2020

The Food WorksSW is a purpose-built food and drink innovation centre, on the outskirts of Weston-super-Mare to support food and drink businesses across the South West. From Tues 6 to Thurs 8 October 2020, food and drink entrepreneurs and established businesses are invited to book private tours of this brand new, multi-million pound facility – with Open Day guests eligible for exclusive discounts on room hire and space rental.

“Our state-of-the-art Product Development Kitchens, food-grade Business Units and conferencing facilities are generating interest from local, regional and even national names in food and drink,” said David Nute, Food WorksSW’s Senior Technical and Site Manager. 

“With social distancing and PPE measures in place, we are keen to welcome individuals and groups of up to four people from all types of food and drink companies to explore our extensive site, from its impressive networking and hot-desk spaces to our development kitchens, lounge area and flexible conference facilities.”

The Food WorksSW has 12 food-grade Business Units of between 1,000sq. ft and 1,500sq. ft, plus four state-of-the-art Development Kitchens. It also has impressive business networking spaces and a configurable video-conferencing suite, with an on-site café launching soon.

Zoe Plant is the site’s New Product Development and Innovation Manager. Zoe said, “We can’t wait to showcase The Food WorksSW to even more of the region’s food and drink entrepreneurs, start-ups, scale-ups and established companies. In our high-spec development kitchens and spaces, ambitious manufacturers will find the highest quality, food-grade premises for their new product development and batch and trial runs.

“The Food WorksSW offers so much more than physical space,” Zoe continued. “Those who rent our cutting-edge kitchens and units – by the hour, day or longer term – will also get access to the team’s unparalleled technical expertise and experience in innovation, insight and market analysis.

“During our October Open Day tours, let’s talk about what your business and products need, from nutritional analysis to Environmental Health compliance, and from allergen labelling to Covid-19 and Brexit contingency plans.”
