In the UK, our customers include some of the UKs best known grocery retailers who sell our products to consumers under their respective retail brands.

Our Bakkavor site in Newark, which is part of our Desserts division, specialises in cream cakes and trifles and we are market leaders in both categories. To give a feel for the scale of manufacturing we produce 137 million packs of cream cakes and 24 million trifles each year. We employ 1600 people and have plans to grow this significantly over the next 3 years.

This is due to new business which will be supplied from the site this summer. The site is currently building an extra area to accommodate this new business, with further extensions planned in 2019. This new area will allow us to handle nuts and other allergens, strengthening the business’s product competencies. We are also investing in our site facilities for all of our staff.

It has never been a more exciting time to be part of a forward thinking company and a site that is delivering commercial success year on year. We are looking for amazing talent in the local community who can support the success of the site now and into the future. We have weekly paid operative vacancies right though to senior and mid-level salaried positions.
