Peterborough, Cambridgeshire

Project summary

  • We helped facilitate a deal between our client and a private landlord.
  • FloGro Fresh are looking to move to a new purpose-designed and built facility capable of meeting the demand for their prawns.
  • The site was chosen due to its scope for the self-generation of heat and power to feed into the new facility.
  • This will enhance both the energy security and support the practical running of the facility by reducing company food miles and ultimately its carbon footprint.


  • We met with FloGro Fresh to understand their needs.
  • A review of prospective sites was undertaken and preferred options were scrutinised.
  • Renewable energy opportunities (namely solar PV and a ground source heat pump) were reviewed and measured against their demand requirements.
  • We agreed Heads of Terms with the landlord of the chosen site to take an Option to Lease land.
  • FloGro Fresh are now pursuing planning, expected towards the end of 2022.


  • We were able to agree commercial terms which were fair to the landlord yet affordable to FloGro Fresh.
  • The ability of FloGro Fresh to generate their own electricity (via solar PV) and heat (via a GSHP) is key to their business model and the companies ESG credentials.
  • Pending planning and build, the client can grow their business in accordance with their core concept.
