Food maker bags new unit near M1

Have your say

Food manufacturer Country Feast has acquired a 9,900 sq ft unit on the Carlton Industrial Estate, close to Junction 38 of the M1 in Barnsley, for an undisclosed sum.

Dave Cato, associate director of CBRE’s Industrial Agency team, which sold the unit, sees the deal, coming at the same time as a similar deal nearby, in West Yorkshire, as signs of an upturn.

“We have witnessed an upsurge in demand for units of around 10,000 sq ft which are being purchased by firms to enable them to own their business premises,” said Mr Cato.

“This demonstrates that occupier confidence is growing which is a positive sign for the continued recovery of the sector as a whole.”
