In December, Hull-based baker Jacksons revealed plans to invest £40M in a new factory and create 100 new jobs, after securing planning permission from the local council.
The new bakery will be built on a 10-acre site in Genner Road on the Willowbrook East Industrial Estate in Corby, which was purchased by the business in February.
The site has been specifically designed to make bread for sandwich manufacturers. Jacksons expected the factory to be operational by summer next year.
Commenting on the business’s expansion plans, md Simon Ball said: “The new bakery will help us grow as a business and allow us to build on the great work we do in Hull.
“We have a brilliant team working on the expansion project and there’s a real buzz of excitement right across our business as we have the opportunity to create something really special which will be at the forefront of bread making in the UK.”
