Partners signed the last section of steel to celebrate construction progress at the Broadland Food Innovation Centre, which will open later in 2022.
The facility on the outskirts of Norwich will include 13 food-grade incubation units, test and sensory kitchens. Businesses on site will also benefit from a bespoke innovation support programme with expert help from Hethel Innovation. It will form part of a developing cluster bringing together food and drink businesses and technical experts from Norwich Research Park, hosted by the University of East Anglia.
The Broadland Food Innovation Centre is being delivered and funded by New Anglia LEP, Broadland District Council, Hethel Innovation, University of East Anglia and the European Regional Development Fund.
