Greggs set to increase supply chain capacity

12 March 2024/Categories: Industry News, Freight Forwarding, Logistics & Supply Chain


The national bakery chain Greggs, has announced plans to grow their manufacturing and logistics capacity and are investing in two new distribution facilities.

This comes after Greggs published their preliminary results for 2023 showing an increase of 13.1% compared to 2022 with £188 million in pre tax profits.

Greggs are to redevelop distributions centres in Birmingham and Amesbury adding increased logistics capacity for 300 shops by the end of 2024 as part of their short-term capacity plan.

Their medium-term capacity plan includes a new frozen manufacturing facility in Derby and a new national distribution centre in Kettering/Corby.

The company said: “Derby’s frozen manufacturing site will progressively lay down additional production capacity and provide automated storage and picking operations.”

“The Kettering/Corby national distribution centre will be responsible for storage, picking and distribution of ambient and chilled goods. This site will enable our existing radial distribution centres to extend their capacity.”

The new facilities are expected to open in 2026/27 to help supply more than 3000 stores.

Greggs CEO, Roisin Currie said: "2023 was another year of rapid growth and strong progress for Greggs.

“Our teams across the business, whether in our shops, our manufacturing sites, our distribution network, or in Greggs House, continued to rise to the challenge of serving more customers through more channels - working tirelessly to keep pace with increased customer demand.

“I am optimistic and excited about delivering our bold five-year growth plan as we continue on our journey to become a significantly larger, multi-channel business."
