Food & Nutrition
The powerhouse for food and nutrition
The Hub is our vision of a new generation of food and nutrition powerhouse with up to 30’000sqm space. Located in Switzerland in the heart of Europe. To deliver this vision it is critical to involve future users right from the start of the development process.
The working environment of the future
is being completely reimagined. Disruption is transforming entire industries and value chains.
Future industrial buildings will be versatile
Commercial and industrial spaces must be able to adapt quickly to changing needs, be centrally located and energy efficient. The Hub is aimed at discerning companies operating in speciality industries, manufacturing, robotics, production, research, or services. In other words, companies that need more than just space.
That’s why we’re partnering with future users to design “The Hub”
We want to partner with companies who are proactively embracing the working environment of the future. We want nothing less than to move into the next generation of commercial, industrial, and office space. We want to build an ecosystem of partners.
Food and Nutrition quality is at the heart of swiss agriculture ecosystem
Switzerland is the home of major international companies who have set their headquarters, manufacturing facilities, R&D centers or subsidiaries to deploy their strategic activities at the center of Europe. This includes notably ADM, Amcor, Barry Callebaut, Bühler, Chiquita, DSM, Firmenich, General Mills, Givaudan, Lindt and Sprüngli, Lonza, Nestlé, Nespresso, SGS, Starbucks and Syngenta. Besides, Switzerland is the number one country for innovation.
Switzerland is endowed with a exceptional research universities. The Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPF Lausanne) and the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich (ETH Zurich) are the 2 Swiss universities with the highest worldwide ranking. It is to be noted that all Swiss universities are among the top 200 universities world-wide. Interestingly, both EPFL and ETHZ include foodtech-specific organizations such as the Integrative Food and nutrition Center (EPFL) and the World Food Systems (ETHZ). Additional universities host food-specific research activities.
Switzerland benefits from a consequent number of techno parks, incubators and accelerators, among which many have a strong focus on foodtech. Its outstanding foodtech infrastructures, and its highly interconnected network of research institutions and foodtech companies, Switzerland is THE place for cutting-edge science and technology for a more sustainable future.
Location Location Location
Switzerland is particularly well positioned to address new challenges many companies face when it comes to predictability. The country has repeatedly proven strong and resilient amidst global crises. Here, companies not only profit from a stable and low risk environment but also from a brand that has been consistently linked to high quality, technological superiority and trust: “made in Switzerland”.
Although outside the European Union, Switzerland has strong trading links with Europe. This combination of factors makes Switzerland a perfect European base for international organisations.
Space for ideas, products, and processes
There is no limit to how The Hub can be used. Whether you need refrigerated rooms for storage, research labs, special conditions for high-tech production, clean rooms or office space in the form of a multistorey atrium.
Room height and layout can be arranged to suit tenants/buyers requirements. We have plenty of space, with up to 6'500sqm available on each floor. The Hub can be built up to 25m high and 3 stories underground including several hundred parking spaces.
Be part of the creation of the data center of the future
The Hub stands for the concept of co-ownership, intended for tenants as well as future owners.
The Hub will be the best building we have ever built. An ambitious goal.
