New warehouse unit for Forage & Season
A Bury St Edmunds-based company whose business successfully pivoted during the Covid-19 pandemic has relocated to new premises at Moreton Hill Retail Park.
Eddisons acted as sole agents on behalf of the landlord in negotiating a new 6 year lease at 3 Cratfield Road to Forage & Season.
The company, which owns fine dining restaurant Forage Kitchen in Bury St Edmunds, were forced to temporarily close its doors in 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic hit.
Now, the company have moved premises to a 2718 sq ft warehouse trade counter to facilitate their new range of artisan food subscription boxes and cookery courses.
Mel Evans, Director at Forage & Season Limited, comments:
“The pandemic has had a profound effect on many businesses with the hospitality industry one of the worst affected. With near on 100% of our business shutting down overnight we had to look at what else we could do, simply for business survival. Adversity created early initial successes which soon led to new opportunities presenting themselves, opportunities that we were keen to push and invest in positively with the hope of life returning to something near to normality.
“Eddisons helped us find a new unit in Bury St Edmunds that was perfect for our requirements and has enabled us to start developing a production kitchen, storage facility and dispatch centre to help us to continue and grow our business.
“We’re ready and looking forward to everything that 2022 can throw at us!”
