A large undercover greenhouse is being constructed in Lancaster.

A multi-million dollar project to install a retractable roof at La Manna Premier Group's Lancaster greenhouse facility has officially completed its first stage.

The three-stage project will ultimately facilitate 25 hectares of under-cover growing, producing hydroponically grown gourmet loose tomatoes, and see the number of employees at the site grow to over 200.

Group chief executive officer Anthony Di Pietro said the investment will help to deliver greater benefits and improve the environmental sustainability at the growing facility.
