More than 100 jobs are being created at a food producer following a growth in orders.

Freshcook, which is part of Spalding-based fresh prepared foods manufacturer Bakkavor, is looking to recruit more than 100 new employees at its factory in Holbeach St Marks.

The firm produces a range of chilled categories, from high-end ready meals through to delicatessen products for premium retailer Marks & Spencer.

Due to increased demand, the Holbeach business is looking to boost its current 600-strong staff team with new operative roles across day and night shifts as well as a number of management roles.

Will Naylor, business HR manager at Freshcook, said: “Our recruitment drive at Freshcook is a great reflection of how well the team is performing and the success of new product ranges.

“This is an exciting time for the company, and we are pleased to be recruiting to boost the already skilled and dedicated team at Freshcook.”

The business offers opportunities for development and progression within the site and the wider Bakkavor Group.

Alongside competitive rates of pay and training, other potential benefits include access to a subsidised gym, canteen and staff shop.
