Commercial property consultants, Legat Owen, have been appointed by Givaudan UK to handle the disposal of a site in Bromborough, due to close later this year.
The area comprises a facility of 200,000 sq ft on a self-contained site of 20 acres near the Wirral International Business Park, Bromborough.
The savoury flavouring production facility, which has been in operation for more than 40 years, was originally part of Unilever before it was sold to ICI in 1997. Back then it was known as Quest International, which was bought by Givaudan in 2007.
Patrick Hughes, associate director at Legat Owen, said: "The site has been very well maintained and benefits from a number of key features including significant electricity capacity, an extensive land holding, very close proximity to dock access as well as access to well water via a bore hole.
"Our aim is to identify a purchaser who will invest in the site going forward and believe it will prove of interest in the current market as there are few large scale sites such as this available in the region at the present time."
A guide price has not been quoted at this stage.
