Hotel Chocolat signs lease for second UK distribution centre

Hotel Chocolat has signed a new ten year lease on a second UK distribution centre.
The new DC is in Northampton and will be operational in time for Christmas 2023, the company said this week.

The 429,107 sq ft facility is part of the Panattoni logistics park in Northampton. Hotel Chocolat’s existing distribution centre, Alpha, is based in Saint Neots, Cambridgeshire.

It comes as the company reports that its online business is now three times bigger than it was in 2019. In the UK sales grew 35% vs FY21 and 68% vs FY19 and the company is largely refocusing efforts on the UK.

Hotel Chocolat has also introduced new categories of in-home drinks and alcohol products that it says is allowing it to access new incremental markets and channels.
