Milestone Group to open new Liverpool food hall

GPO will be located on the Victoria Street entrance at Metquarter adjoining Everyman and will focus on a wide variety of cuisines under one roof and offering support and incubation for the 'best this emerging food scene has to offer'

The Milestone Group, which operates under its brand General Post Office (GPO), will open a new food hall at the repurposed Metquarter in Liverpool in late Spring 2021, creating 132 jobs.

GPO will be located on the Victoria Street entrance at Metquarter adjoining Everyman and will focus on a wide variety of cuisines under one roof and offering support and incubation for the “best this emerging food scene has to offer”.

Alex Hyams, asset manager for Queensberry which owns the development, said: ‘This is tremendous news, we’re delighted to be bringing Milestone Group as experienced food hall operators to Liverpool. GPO will be the largest food hall in the city centre and adds to the dynamic blend of uses which make up our unique offering at Metquarter.”

Matt Bigland, founder and director at The Milestone Group, commented that the GPO will be a “hub for Liverpool’s emerging food hall scene” with a mix of “design and culinary excellence”.

He said: “Independent and totally unique food vendors make up the mix, hand chosen and incubated to showcase the best in the world food in one iconic venue. Looking for talent that aligns with the GPO’s core values is no easy task. We are constantly on the lookout for the next food stars.

“We help form impressive brands while supporting them in our food hall. If you think your brand is a good fit for GPO or have talent for the next big hit let us know! We want to work with you.”
