Hunger for growth sees New World move office

Have your say

A food firm that was founded by the former England rugby union stars Charlie, Mark and James Simpson-Daniel has moved to a new head office.

New World Foods Europe, which employs 30 staff, has relocated its headquarters to Poppleton Business Park, near York. The HQ is moving from Moor Monkton, near York, where its manufacturing facility will continue to be based.

The company, which makes protein snacks, was founded in 2012 and acquired by New World Foods (Europe) in 2014,

New World Foods (Europe) supplies beef biltong and other products to national supermarkets and high street retailers. To meet growing demand for its products, the company has signed a five-year lease on 1,800 sq ft of office space at Marlborough House in Poppleton Business Park to accommodate its management team.

Roland Froebel, managing director of New World Foods (Europe), said: “We are experiencing fantastic growth and expect to significantly increase our turnover this year, having gained national listings with a number of major supermarkets.

“This growth means that we need modern, office space to house our heads of finance, sales and marketing. Our current facility does not lend itself to expansion.”

The company was advised by Langleys Solicitors.
