Development & Test Kitchens

Our Food Innovation Centre is home to four state-of-the-art product development kitchens, available for flexible short term rent by food and drink businesses. The kitchens meet the latest environmental health legislation and allow businesses of any size, from start-ups to large enterprises to scale-up production, introduce new lines, produce short runs and pilot product improvements.

The development kitchens have been built to food-grade standard and include standard catering equipment as well as specialist items initially linked to bakery, dairy, ready meal and drinks development. Our smaller Test Kitchen is perfect for those currently producing at home and looking to take the next step, or start to make larger product runs/batches. Our onsite New Product Development & Innovation Manager, will support your development journey whilst using the kitchens.
