Sysco GB to invest £15m in Scotland facility

Foodservice wholesaler Sysco GB plans to invest £15 million in its Brakes Scotland Newhouse depot as it aims to expand the number of Scottish products it sells. Delivering to a diverse range of businesses – including pubs, restaurants, schools and other food establishments across Scotland – Brakes offers an extensive selection of fresh, frozen and ambient products, along with catering equipment. The investment will expand the site by over 25%, creating approximately 100 new jobs. The Newhouse site, currently one of the largest among Sysco's 30 depots in the British network, is set to expand to over 200,000 square feet upon receiving planning permission. The expansion aims to enhance the facilities, enabling the company to broaden its range of local fresh products. This strategic move is significant as the demand for such products "is becoming increasingly important to food outlets across the country," said Sysco. Paul Nieduszynski, chief executive of Sysco GB, said: “Brakes Scotland has grown steadily over the past few years, serving communities right across the nation. The investment that we are making in the Newhouse facility to increase our capacity and grow our Scottish range shows our commitment to providing market-leading range and service to our existing and new customers across Scotland.”
