Jobs boost for Haverhill as food supplier seeks 40 new staff




One of the UK’s leading pork processors, Karro Food Group, is seeking to take on 40 new staff on permanent and temporary contracts at its factory near Haverhill to meet the increased demand for food from supermarkets.

The company, whose site is in Little Wratting, is looking for people to join it in a whole range of factory based roles.

Steve Ellis, CEO at Karro, said: “Following the government’s advice to avoid unnecessary social contact due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the demand for in home food has risen sharply.

“We are proud to do our bit to keep food on the nations table and are looking for more people to come and help support our efforts.”

There is an immediate need to recruit people into the business at Haverhill.

These are uncertain times for many people, especially in the hospitality industry, as pubs, restaurants and hotels close. Applicants from the hospitality sector could be particularly suitable due to familiarity with food hygiene and safety regulations.

However, Karro will also provide training to those who have no experience.

Mr Ellis added: “At Karro we want to do all we can to support the local communities in which we operate. We would encourage people looking for permanent or temporary employment to get in touch and come and join us in feeding the nation.”
