Bakkavor’s Welcome Foods site was offered for sale, after closing its doors in August with about 300 job losses.
The Nottinghamshire-based factory was available to rent for £246,929 a year. It included the food processing factory, warehouse, storage space and a three-storey office building, said estate agent Savills.
The Huthwaite factory had been the Welcome Foods’s ingredients plant, but was closed after it was no longer economically viable, Bakkavor said.
The firm was hit by difficult trading conditions, and while it searched for alternatives to job cuts, it concluded that Welcome Foods was no longer a money-making business.
The former Bakkavor site totals 4,830m2, and was available for £51/m2. Built in 2001, the estate agent expected a lot of interest for the food processing factory.
