A food business park in Nottingham has been handed £1.67m by the city council to help it double in size.
Southglade Food Park, in Bestwood, opened in 2005 and features units specifically built for use by food and drink firms.
The Food and Drink Forum, which runs the park, said the council cash would help it unlock a further £4.25m of European funding for the expansion.
About 90 new jobs would be created at the site, bringing the total to 190.
Fiona Anderson, managing director of the Food and Drink Forum, said: "It is excellent news Southglade phase two has city council support.
"For some time we have had a waiting list of firms keen to move onto Southglade and they will welcome the news."
