Food brand Huel has taken a 71,000 sq ft unit at PLP MK, PLP’s net zero carbon logistics park in Milton Keynes.

The unit, currently under construction and expected to complete in December, will have a number of energy saving features. It is one of 10, totalling 849,000 sq ft, in phase one which is expected to complete in January.

Edward Jackson, development director for PLP, said: “Delivering best-in-class buildings, and a best-in-class business environment, speculatively at PLP MK demonstrates how confident we are in our product.

“Huel stands out from the crowd. We are delighted to welcome them to PLP MK and we look forward to welcoming many more customers in the near future.”

Ruvan Mendis, chief operations officer for Huel said: “We are extremely excited to announce the opening of our new state-of-the-art manufacturing site in Milton Keynes in early 2024.

“The site developed by PLP will have some of the best sustainability credentials in the country and reinforces our commitment to minimising our impact on animals and the environment.

“This factory is a key part of our growth ambitions for the future, and over the coming months we’ll be recruiting for a wide range of manufacturing roles to operate the site, taking our overall team of Hueligans well past the 300 milestone.”

Kirkby Diamond advised PLP and Knight Frank represented Huel.
