Expansion at Bakkavour set to create up to 200 new jobs

Cheshire-based private label bakery, Bakkavor Bread, has announced the recruitment drive at its two factories in Crewe and Nantwich to meet the ongoing customer demand for its products.

The vacancies are primarily factory operative roles, and are permanent positions with continental shift patterns across both day and night shifts.

The two sites, which currently employ more than 670 people, produce more than 11 million bread items each week with an average of 50 different types of product being run at any one time.

Paul Peachey, Business Director for Bakkavor Bread & Pizza said: “Bakkavor Bread continues to expand and the recruitment drive shows that demand for our delicious chilled breads continues to grow.”

Bakkavor Bread is also committed to employee training and development and in partnership with Reaseheath College in Nantwich, the business has developed a Bakery qualification as well as Food and Drink Operator training under the Apprenticeship levy program, both of which are on offer to all employees.
