Greggs invests in state-of-the-art frozen manufacturing and logistics site to support growth plans

3 min read

In line with our plans to significantly expand our manufacturing and logistics network, Greggs has entered into a lease agreement for a new state-of-the-art frozen production and logistics facility at SmartParc SERGO Derby in Spondon, Derby.

The new site, which is currently being developed and is expected to open in late 2026, will provide us with additional manufacturing and logistics capacity, as we extend our network to service up to 3,500 shops in the UK.

The new purpose-built facility will provide additional manufacturing capacity for products – including sweet and savoury production lines – as well as logistics for frozen storage and fully automated robotic order picking and distribution. Additional capacity is available to invest in new manufacturing platforms and production lines to meet future category growth, innovation and development, as well as volume demand.

With sustainability being a key focus for us at Greggs, this site has been designed with the environment in mind, with features including an onsite shared Energy Centre (a centralised heating and cooling system that recycles heat from refrigeration plants across the estate), a rainwater harvesting system, PV panels and EV charging points.
