BELFAST ready meals company ‘Go Pig or Go Home’ has moved into a new 16,050 sq ft warehouse unit in the Titanic Quarter’s Channel Commercial Park.

The health food start-up said it’s also recruiting an additional 10 staff in response to “the phenomenal demand” for its products.

James Hutchinson, who owns the company with Gary Milligan, said the expansion represented “a substantial investment” for the food firm, which was incorporated just over two years ago.

The company is now supplying the likes of Spar, Centra and SuperValu, as well as fitness facilities and gyms. A home delivery service is also in operation.

Lisa McAteer from property firm CBRE, who acted on behalf of the landlord Titanic Quarter Ltd, said there is currently a shortage of quality warehouse sites in Northern Ireland at present.

“There has been huge competition for quality industrial and logistics units in Northern Ireland over the last year and a half which has led to an increased demand for manufacturing, storage and distribution space.

“We are thrilled to have helped facilitate this exciting phase of expansion for Go Pig or Go Home as the business up-scales to a new warehouse facility in Belfast. Moving to this new premises in Titanic Quarter’s Channel Commercial Park will support Go Pig or Go Home’s ambitious plans for future business growth.”
