In January, 2 Sisters Food Group revealed plans to create 100 new jobs “across all levels” at its Derby factory, just over a year on from buying the site from administrators.
The poultry giant had already added 500 jobs after buying the facility from Asian ready meals specialist S&A Foods in December 2015.
Manufacturing at the factory re-started in April 2016. As part of a “multi-million pound” investment in production line technology, 2 Sisters has launched barbecue, ready-to-cook and ready-to-eat ranges from the site.
Geoff Allison, site director at 2 Sisters Derby, said the extra jobs would become available across all levels of the business as the site grew to fulfil its production capability and moved from single to double shift patterns.
