Food Enterprise Zone
Central Bedfordshire is home to leading food and drink brands including Jordans Ryvita and Signature Flatbreads, as well as a significant agricultural sector which includes over 420 businesses.
The council has successfully gained support from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) to establish a Food Enterprise Zone (FEZ) in the Ivel Valley area and a Local Development Order
for the Stratton Business Park. This will provide national and international marketing opportunities.
