Ideally located at Edinburgh Parks, Northern Adelaide Food Park is serviced by key transport and logistics infrastructure, is within close proximity to major freight routes and has direct road connections to some of South Australia’s main food producing regions.
The Government of South Australia's investment in northern Adelaide will support the success of Food Park, through projects such as the Northern Adelaide Irrigation Scheme, which is providing recycled water to horticultural growers on the northern Adelaide Plains; and the Northern Connector Project, which is reducing road delivery times into and out of Food Park and enhancing connections to Adelaide Airport and the State’s food producing areas.
Businesses securing a site at Food Park can leverage the opportunities of co-locating with like enterprises and accessing services on one precinct – improving their potential to export, collaborate and build productivity through economies of scale.
Australia’s largest independent grocery retailer, Drakes Supermarkets, is building a state-of-the-art $80 million grocery distribution centre just 2.5 kilometres from Food Park. It will have the capacity to house approximately 23,000 separate lines of products, including grocery, dairy and frozen foods. Drakes has a strong emphasis on supporting local food producers through its growing list of 59 stores in South Australia and Queensland.
De Lorean is planning to build a bioenergy plant at Food Park which will convert up to 200,000 tonnes of waste each year into energy. The plant will use biogas from liquid and solid waste from park-based businesses to create electricity, gas and thermal heating. Excess energy will also be fed back to the grid.
In addition to DeLorean, businesses set to re-locate at Food Park include local specialist cheese producer, La Casa del Formaggio, and Auscold Logistics, which will build a transport, distribution and storage hub for small-to-medium food producers, including chilled and frozen cold storage.
The Food Park site is well-serviced and has a range of shovel-ready allotments, ready for immediate development.
There are options to purchase or lease already constructed buildings and options to purchase vacant land. Freehold allotments range in size from 3,500–50,000 square metres.
