Apprentice Boom For Food Manufacturer

Thursday August 2 2012

A WOMBWELL food manufacturer has recruited its biggest-ever intake of apprentices.

Fresh-Pak Chilled Foods, of Waterside Park, Valley Way, is the country's biggest producer of sandwich fillings and hard-boiled egg processing.

The company is taking on 14 apprentices to join the apprentice programme and complete a level two food manufacturing qualification before becoming permanent members of the company.

Five will then be fast-tracked to management and technical positions.

Andrea Barlow, HR manager of Fresh-Pak said: "We have recognised a skills gap within the industry and are now embarking on our own apprenticeship scheme which will give the right candidates the credentials to build a successful career within the industry."

Founded more than 20 years ago, Fresh-Pak opened its site in Wombwell in 2004 and now employs over 250 people.
