Sysco GB to invest £15m in Brakes Scotland

Foodservice wholesaler Sysco GB is to invest £15m in its Brakes Scotland Newhouse depot with the aim of growing the number of Scottish products it sells.

The investment at the depot, which is based around 15 miles east of Glasgow, will expand the site by more than 25% and create around 100 new jobs.

While Brakes Scotland's Newhouse site is one of the largest of the 30 depots in Sysco's UK network, once planning permission has been granted, which is expected to be in May next year, the Newhouse site will grow to more than 200,000sq feet.

It is hoped the site will be fully operational by June 2026.

Paul Nieduszynski, chief executive at Sysco GB, said: "Brakes Scotland has grown steadily over the past few years, serving communities right across the nation.

"The investment that we are making in the Newhouse facility to increase our capacity and grow our Scottish range shows our commitment to providing market-leading range and service to our existing and new customers across Scotland."

Brakes, which sells a range of fresh and frozen products, as well as catering equipment, to pubs, restaurants, schools and restaurants across Scotland, operates three other sites in the country in Dundee, Oban and Inverness.
