COOK, the award-winning UK frozen food company, opened today at Stane Retail Park, selling its hand-prepared meals and puddings.

Rosie Brown and Ed Perry, joint CEOs and siblings, said: “It’s pretty much 25 years to the day since we opened our very first shop and we’re delighted to have finally made it to Colchester, where we’ve wanted to be for ages. A delicious home-cooked meal is food not just for the body but for the soul. COOK is there for those days when you don’t have the time or the inclination to cook from scratch yourself.”

Cook is the third tenant to open at the recently built Stane Retail Park joining B&Q and Aldi.

Emma Proctor King, Head of Communications said “Churchmanor Estates are thrilled to be welcoming Cook to the line up at Stane Retail Park. We believe that they will be a great addition to the existing retail offer and we are delighted to be able to be part of their first shop in Colchester”
