The first new development on the former sugar beet factory is set to create 120 jobs – we asked people in Ipswich what they thought.

The development is set to be a distribution centre for multi-national food company LDH Ladoria.

The company supplies many well-known brands in supermarkets across the country including Glenryck tinned fish, Summer Pride canned fruit, Cook Italia, Bonduelle canned vegetables, and Mrs Ball’s chutney.

It will create 120 jobs when it starts operating – and could eventually expand further.

LDH currently has premises at the Port of Felixstowe – but in its planning application it says it needs a new, larger site to cope with its planned growth over the next few years.

The excellent link to the A14 makes the former Sproughton sugar beet factory site ideal for its needs.
