Building on existing food clusters, Greater Lincolnshire has received support from DEFRA for planning work on three Food Enterprise Zones (FEZs).

The Food Enterprise Zones will provide support for new or growing businesses in the food chain and will provide growing businesses and investors with easier planning, access to investment incentives and a supportive business community in which to grow.  

In total, our FEZs will provide over 120 hectares of new commercial food chain industrial space.

  • Europarc 4 in Grimsby to build on the existing fish and food processing cluster
  • Central Lincolnshire at Lincolnshire Showground and Hemswell Cliff to build on the arable sector
  • Holbeach to build on the south Lincolnshire fresh produce cluster.
