The business is to set up operations in a new 645,000 square feet facility that is still to be built as part of a £55 million development on the former Mars Petcare site in Shrewsbury Avenue, Woodston.
The name of the company has not been revealed but is hoped the firm will be in a position to start operations later next year.
A detailed planning application to build the manufacturing centre on the 29.86 acres site, which has been named Delta Park, has been submitted to Peterborough City Council by developers Trebor Developments and Hillwood.
A deal to buy the land was agreed with Mars Petcare by Trebor Developments and Hillwood late last year and work is expected to start on site from March 2022.
The two companies secured the green light from city planners in July for a two-unit speculative development after the submission of an outline planning application.
