Addo Food Group is on a recruitment drive to fill more than 200 vacancies, created to meet the UK’s rising demand for fridge-staples since the outbreak of the pandemic.

The Group has created a range of new part-time, full-time, temporary and permanent positions for production and factory operatives, engineers, technical service managers, development chefs and technologists, executives and taste panel coordinators. Experience within the food manufacturing industry is not essential as full training will be provided for all roles.

Surge in sales

“We have kept the nation supplied with chilled pastry products over the past 16 months and we have been working hard to produce our quality pastries, pasties and party food for major retailers, as well as manufacturing rolls and pies for our category-leading brands Wall’s Pastry and Pork Farms,”​ said Deborah Bolton, CEO of Addo Food Group.

“This recruitment drive will help to support our current employees with the surge in sales and there are a variety of positions available for people with all levels of experience, across our Nottingham, Shropshire, Dorset and Poole factories.”

Addo Food Group specialises in the chilled savoury pastry – a market worth £1.1bn – and currently employs around 2,400 people to create its range of pork pies, quiches, savoury pies, sausage rolls, pasties, slices and scotch eggs.
