A food manufacturer has agreed a deal to relocate across Birmingham to a brand new facility.
Tofu King will move from its current base in Small Heath to a new warehouse in Aston which it says will be the largest dedicated tofu production facility in the UK.
It is working with Pentadel Project Management on the fit out of the 32,300 sq ft site with the aim of being operational by the end of this year.
Tofu King will move all of its existing operations to its new plant which will also have a high-level viewing gallery and canteen for staff.
The new facility, which will process six tonnes of soybeans per day, will supply Tofu King’s existing UK independent and trade base and enable it to grow its business through new retail and foodservice opportunities.
Tofu King’s owner Yan Lui said: “”We are very excited about our new facility which can’t come soon enough as popularity for bean curd products in the UK grows.
“We currently have an expertly designed facility in development, that will not only meet our business expansion plans but also offer a welcoming and pleasant workplace for our staff.”
