The new facility will support the expansion of Greggs’ manufacturing and logistics network to build capacity for up to 3,500 shops in the UK. Greggs’ strategic growth plan, announced in 2021, set out ambitious expansion targets requiring investment in significant supply chain capacity. At 12 May 2024, Greggs had 2,500 shops trading and it expects to open between 140-160 net new shops during 2024. The longer-term target is to have significantly more than 3,000 shops trading in the UK.

The new facility is being developed at SmartParc SEGRO Derby, the high-tech food manufacturing development in Spondon, Derby. Greggs will occupy a 23-acre plot on the campus. Following the construction of the building, Greggs will develop the facility and install state-of-the-art manufacturing and logistics equipment to optimise the efficiency of operations on site. The site is expected to open in late 2026 and create up to 600 jobs.

The new purpose-built facility will provide additional manufacturing capacity for products - including new savoury and sweet production lines – as well as logistics for frozen storage and fully automated robotic shop order picking and distribution. The facility will also have additional capacity to enable further investments to meet future category growth, innovation and development, including the capacity for at least five manufacturing platforms and the potential for new production lines to be commissioned to meet volume demand.

The site has been designed with a focus on sustainability including the use of 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, EV charging points and a secure bike storage to help reduce local emissions.

Roisin Currie, Chief Executive at Greggs commented:

“We are delighted to announce our new state-of-the-art facility at SmartParc SEGRO Derby. This purpose-built site offers significant flexibility to add new capabilities and lines as our business evolves. This is a significant step in our supply chain investment and will provide much-needed manufacturing and logistics support to power our ambitious growth plans.”

Dan Holford, Head of National Markets at SEGRO said:

“We are thrilled to welcome Greggs to SmartParc SEGRO Derby. It is a ringing endorsement of the development and our principles of sustainability, collaboration and connectivity that we have been able to attract customers of such calibre. We look forward to Greggs joining us on site next year.”

Jackie Wild, CEO at SmartParc said:

“We are delighted that Greggs has chosen to deliver its latest manufacturing facility at SmartParc SEGRO Derby. It is our ultimate vision that SmartParc becomes a hub for forward-thinking food businesses seeking sustainable and efficient operations whilst putting their people first. Greggs embodies this approach and we are immensely proud to welcome such a cherished food business to the site.”

About Greggs

Greggs is a leading UK food-on-the-go retailer with more than 2,500 shops nationwide and approximately 32,000 employees across the business.

The company was founded in 1939 by John Gregg, then delivering fresh eggs and yeast, by pushbike, to the families of Newcastle. Greggs has since grown to become a nations-favourite and much-loved British brand.

Greggs has always been committed to doing the right thing by its people, partners and the communities it serves. In the sixties Greggs launched its first free ‘pie n peas supper’ for older residents in Gateshead, an initiative that still runs today and continues to support the elderly within the communities Greggs operates in. The Greggs Breakfast Club, launched in 1999, provides schoolchildren with free wholesome breakfasts each school day and today supports more than 62,000 children through its 900 Breakfast Clubs, across the UK. These, and many more initiatives, are supported through the Greggs Foundation, our dedicated grant-making charity that aims to build stronger, healthier communities in the areas we operate.

As a food-on-the-go retailer, Greggs continues to specialise in daily fresh shop-made sandwiches, and savouries baked fresh in the shop ovens throughout the day. These are further complemented by popular products and ranges including freshly ground coffee, breakfast, confectionery, vegan and evening menu items. Greggs also offers healthier choices which includes a selection of lower calorie products. 

Greggs has delivery partnerships with Just Eat and Uber Eats enabling customers to enjoy their Greggs favourites via order and delivery. Greggs’ Click + Collect offering provides customers with the ability to select their shop and collection time slot of choice and allows them to order a range of Greggs products in advance, ready for collection when they arrive in our shops. Customers can earn stamps and rewards across all menu categories, on both walk-in and Click + Collect purchases through the Greggs App.
