Food distribution returns to former Co-op site in Lincoln

The former Lincolnshire Co-op Food Distribution Centre on Pioneer Way in Lincoln was closed in 2018 before being purchased by Boulder Developments. Since then, the site has become home to several growing businesses with Polish food wholesaler Spiżarnia being the latest company to relocate to the five-acre site.

Spiżarnia is a distributor of Polish products to the British Isles supplying over 10,000 different food products across the country. Spiżarnia also have warehouses in London, Manchester and Ireland distributing products across the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands.

Director of Boulder Developments Will Bown said: “We’re really pleased that Spiżarnia has joined us at Boulder Business Park. It seems particularly fitting that they’ve chosen to relocate here, as food distribution is a big part of the site’s history.

“The former food distribution centre was a huge, vacant site when we purchased it, but we’re transforming it into a real hub for growing businesses which is bringing new life to this part of the city. We’re making good use of every part of the five-acre site which is helping all of the businesses here to grow, create jobs and support the local economy.”

Director of Spiżarnia (UK) Ltd, Przemyslaw Duklas said: “We’re very happy to relocate to these new premises. This place suits our needs perfectly, we have been looking for one like this for quite a while now.”

Anthony Barrowcliffe, a surveyor at FHP Property Consultants, who supported the relocation said: “FHP worked with Boulder Developments in the surrender of their lease in Tuxford due to the company’s rapid growth meaning a bigger facility was required.

“Once they had relocated to their new commercial premises in Lincoln, we were instructed to let the surplus space. We are delighted that we have managed to quickly find a new tenant for the front warehouse and look forward to more success on the rest of the site.”
