Food ingredients firm with appetite for growth expands into new storage building

December 9, 2022

Bristol specialist food ingredients manufacturer TasteTech has secured crucial storage space after growing by 50% over the past two years.

The firm, a creative pioneer in the field of microencapsulation – which allows food manufacturers to increase the shelf life and control the release of flavours and ingredients in food stuffs –  has leased additional storage in St Philips.

It is the latest stage of expansion for TasteTech, which has gradually expanded its footprint at Wilverley Industrial Estate in Brislington since its launch in 1992.

Today it makes controlled release food flavourings and functional ingredients for the bakery, confectionery, chewing gum and nutrition markets and now exports to more than 45 countries.

Its 70-strong team occupies four units totaling 28,000 sq ft providing production, laboratories, office and storage capacity.

It has now taken a new 10-year lease on 5,727 sq ft of recently refurbished storage space in Days Road Commercial Centre after agreeing terms through property consultants Alder King and Knight Frank. The units were previously occupied by City Sprint.

TasteTech managing director Janis Sinton said: “We have had to rely on external storage for our raw materials so acquiring this unit allows us to bring our storage back under our control and will help accommodate future growth.”

Emma Smith of Alder King’s industrial agency team added: “Demand for industrial space across Bristol is extremely competitive, especially in the central district of St Philips.”

Alder King and Knight Frank acted for the landlord Bristol Properties Ltd.  TasteTech was represented by Burston Cook.
