‘Go Pig or Go Home’ Ready To Go Into Production In Titanic Quarter

Go Pig or Go Home, producers of healthy, nutritious ready meals which are available in convenience stores, gyms, and for home delivery across Northern Ireland, has moved to a 16,050 sq. ft. unit in Titanic Quarter’s Channel Commercial Park.

Titanic Quarter has welcomed the company to Channel Commercial Park, which is already home to a diverse mix of local, national, and international businesses.

Go Pig or Go Home has made a substantial investment in their new premises, including a state-of-the-art kitchen facility, where they plan to develop innovative new products to add to their existing range. They will also be recruiting an additional 10 staff to keep up with the phenomenal demand for their goods as sales across the region continue to grow.

James Hutchinson, Managing Partner at Go Pig or Go Home said:

“We supply our ‘Go Pig or Go Home’ products to the likes of Spar, Centra and SuperValu, as well as fitness facilities and gyms. We also operate a delivery service to homes across Northern Ireland and the growing demand for our products has enabled our expansion.

“Channel Commercial Park was the ideal location for us to set up our new production and distribution centre, and we are thrilled to join the vibrant business community already established here.”

James Eyre, Titanic Quarter’s Commercial Director, commented:

“Channel Commercial Park is one Belfast’s largest and most versatile business parks and we have been delighted to welcome a number of new and expanding companies to the park in recent months. The strategic location of Titanic Quarter makes Channel Commercial Park the perfect business location, and we wish Go Pig or Go Home every success in their new home here.

CBRE NI Director Lisa McAteer, who acted on behalf of the landlord Titanic Quarter Ltd, commented: “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.”

Notes to Editors

Titanic Quarter

Belfast’s Titanic Quarter is one of Europe’s largest urban-waterfront regeneration projects.

Master-planned over 185 acres on the site where RMS Titanic was designed and built, Titanic Quarter is redefining what it means to work, live, visit and stay in central Belfast. In just over a decade of development Titanic Quarter has evolved into a world class tourism destination, an educational and media campus, a residential community, accommodating high quality Grade A offices and premium retail outlets.

Titanic Quarter offers a location that has sufficient space and advanced I.T. infrastructure to maximise productivity benefits for the highly competitive, high value added international financial, innovation and business services. Citi’s Gateway Offices, located at the entrance to Titanic Quarter, emerged as a symbol of growth of international financial services in Belfast. Olympic House, currently under construction, is the next Grade A office development in Titanic Quarter, which on completion, will accommodate over 1,500 jobs in a BREEAM excellent, state of the art office environment. Further Grade A office developments are planned for Titanic Quarter.

Titanic Quarter attracts global investors growing and extending their international operations. With over 100 national and international organisations, occupants include Citi, Catalyst, Amazon, Microsoft, IBM and SAP. University of Ulster, Queens University Belfast and Belfast Met are also already established in Titanic Quarter.

Titanic Quarter’s Abercorn Residential Complex of 474 high quality apartment homes is located in the centre of a lively urban community with retail units on the ground floor that include a Spar convenience store, Subway and independent coffee shops, representing the modern face of Belfast.

Existing Titanic Quarter hotels include the Titanic Hotel Belfast (120 rooms) which opened in 2017 in the former Harland & Wolff Headquarters Building and Drawing Offices and the Premier Inn Titanic Quarter (121 rooms). Construction of the Hamilton Dock Hotel, a 274-bedroom family focussed hotel adjacent to SS Nomadic and Titanic Belfast, will commence in 2022 further strengthening Belfast’s business, conferencing, leisure and heritage tourism growth.

Attracting millions of visitors annually to experience Titanic heritage, Titanic Quarter has acquired the status as a premier global destination for leisure and business tourism – contributing to Lonely Planet naming Belfast as the best place to visit in 2018. Since 2012 the now iconic landmark Titanic Belfast has attracted over 6.5 million visitors across 145 countries, earning it the prestigious accolade of World’s Leading Visitor Attraction 2016 – World Travel Awards as well as Ireland’s first ever 5 star graded visitor experience. Other heritage attractions within Titanic Quarter include SS Nomadic, HMS Caroline, Thompson Dry Dock, The Great Light, Titanic Walkway and Titanic Slipways – which have been established as one of Belfast’s most sought after outdoor venues hosting events for MTV, BBC and the Giro d’Italia. The Titanic Exhibition Centre hosts major conference, sporting and lifestyle events with attendances of up to 20,000 per event.
