Whittle Jones, agents acting on behalf of Northern Trust Company Ltd, are pleased to announce that Wiga Wagaa have expanded their operations within the Northern Trust portfolio.
Wiga Wagaa have been occupiers at Tanfield Lea (North) Industrial Estate since 2017 and, due to increased demand, have decided to double their space and move to a 1,000 sq ft unit at the nearby Number One Industrial Estate, Consett.
Wiga Waga are multi award winning makers of handmade chilli based products. The company, owned by Dr Victor Nwosu, provide a range of mild to wild chilli heat level products that are suitable for the whole family.
Dr Victor Nwosu, owner of Wiga Wagaa commented “Wiga Wagaa products are a culmination of my past eating experiences in restaurants in the UK, and during my travels abroad to places like Mauritius, Ghana, Nigeria, Malaysia, Thailand, Morocco, Egypt, Spain & Portugal. I have developed a fusion of flavours from Africa, Asia and the rest of the World, and the range of products we offer include oils, sauces, jams, pickles, mayos and snacks. You can shop online at www.wigawagaa.com.
My aim is to start expanding my business through retail outlets, so earlier this year I decided the time was right to move into a bigger unit and the opportunity arose at Number One Industrial Estate.”
Barry Nelson, Regional Property Manager at Whittle Jones, added “I am delighted that Victor chose to expand the Wiga Wagaa enterprise within the Northern Trust portfolio; and I look forward to working with him on his future growth ambitions.”
Number One Industrial Estate extends to over 790,000 sq ft of commercial space split into 105 units and is home to over 70 different businesses, and approximately 1,200 employees. Units on site range from 495 sq ft workshops up to the largest factory unit of 122,560 sq ft.
The estate is located around 1⁄2 mile north of Consett town centre and is readily accessed from the A691 and A692 trunk roads. It is conveniently located for the circa 40,000 surrounding population (2011) and is served by local bus routes along Villa Real Road (A691) and through the estate. Consett has attractive countryside on its doorstep whilst being within easy reach of the major northeast conurbations.
