World foods manufacturer Regal Foods is set to open a new 18,000 sq ft warehouse as part of its wider business expansion this summer, with 20 new jobs created in the process.

The new warehouse is the latest addition to the business’ headquarters on Wallis Street in Bradford. Once completed, the new warehouse will provide additional storage space for raw materials, packaging and finished goods. This, in turn, frees up space within the existing 15,000 sq ft warehouse, which will enable an extension to Regal’s manufacturing arm, The Baking Company, thereby increasing overall efficiencies and capabilities. This allows Regal to bring new products into development, which are due for release later this year.

“We are very pleased with and excited about our new warehouse extension, as it is the first of its kind for Regal Foods”, said Regal’s operations director, Absar Younis. “The 20 new jobs it creates will be highly beneficial to the local community of Bradford.

“Our warehouse is a key part of our exciting 2020 business plans. Besides expanding our storage, it allows us to improve the range and quantity of our product selection. I’m very proud of our team as the company’s continuous growth over the years has allowed us to build this new facility, and thereby create new products for our customers to enjoy”.
