The FoodWorksSW

Construction of a flagship food and drink innovation centre, The Food WorksSW has now begun on the outskirts of Weston-Super-Mare. North Somerset Council has successfully bid for and secured £11.8m Local Growth Deal funding from the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership to create the centre at the heart of the Junction 21 Enterprise Area (J21EA).

The Food WorksSW is a vibrant new centre of excellence for nurturing local food and drink business, located in the Weston Business Quarter, Junction 21EA, ten minutes from the M5 motorway.

The Centre will have twelve food-grade business units (4 x 1500 sq. ft. and 8 x 1000 sq. ft.) To Let. Units will be available for food and drink manufacturing on easy in, easy out basis with access to technical support and expert advice from the on-site team. In addition, four state of the art product development rooms, including a multi-purpose, flexible commercial kitchen space will be available for business to hire on a one off basis and for regular short-term use.

The Food and Drink Forum Ltd was appointed in April 2019 to run the centre on behalf of North Somerset Council and will be working closely with the authority on pre-lets and the fit out of the centre in the lead up to The Food WorksSW becoming operational in March 2020.
