Recipe box company to create hundreds of jobs with move to £40m bespoke, chilled fulfilment centre

St. Modwen Logistics has signed a deal with recipe box retailer, Gousto, to deliver a 295,000 sq ft fulfilment centre at St. Modwen Park Burton, UK.

The £40m bespoke, chilled fulfilment centre will increase Gousto’s operational capacity by 40%.

The sustainable warehouse space will be home to a highly automated, chilled fulfilment centre where Gousto recipe boxes are picked and packed before being delivered to homes across the country. Hundreds of new jobs will be created to run the operation, from engineering managers and warehouse managers to operatives and front-line leaders. Recruitment is expected to begin next year.

CEO and founder of Gousto, Timo Boldt, said: “The future is incredibly exciting for Gousto, as we capitalise on the accelerating trends of convenience, health and sustainability that are driving change within the grocery market.

“We’re delighted to be occupying the space at Burton – not only will this increase our capacity, but it will bring hundreds of job opportunities to the area. We look forward to embarking on our next stage of growth, as we get closer to achieving our vision of becoming the UK’s most-loved way to eat dinner.”

Polly Troughton, Managing Director at St. Modwen Logistics, said: “It’s fantastic to be working in partnership with Gousto and to offer them a bespoke, sustainable warehouse as their operational needs increase and their business flourishes, bringing further employment to the area to support economic growth.

“Our shared mutual values in the environment and sustainability will allow Gousto to innovate, grow and respond to the heightened demand of their expanding customer base.”

St. Modwen Logistics has appointed Readie Construction Limited to deliver the fulfilment centre, with SBH Property Consultants acting on behalf of Gousto.
