The company behind snack brands Nakd, Kiddylicious and Bear is moving out of the capital to a new office near St Albans City station.
Urban Fresh Foods, part of Lotus Bakeries, has taken a 14,000 sq ft office suite at 45 Grosvenor Road and will relocate there from Southwark.
This is the first letting at the newly refurbished 62,000 sq ft Grade A office building for joint agents Aitchison Raffety and Bray Fox Smith.
Matt Bowen, director at Aitchison Raffety, said: “St Albans is benefiting from a rise in enquiries from companies similarly looking to relocate from central London and transfer the whole or part of their operations.
"The local amenities, excellent transport links with easy access to the M25, M1 and A1(M) and direct train link to St Pancras in 21 minutes make St Albans an ideal location.”

There is ongoing interest and further lettings are likely to conclude shortly”.
