Leading UK pork processors are embarking on a major recruitment drive to help meet the increased demand for food from supermarkets and to fill any gaps that arise due to staff absences related to the coronavirus outbreak.

Karro Foods is seeking hundreds of new staff on permanent and temporary contracts for a range of factory-based roles, and is hoping in particular to recruit workers from the struggling food service sector.

More than 200 positions available at its Malton headquarters in North Yorkshire, more than 100 in Scunthorpe and in Cookstown in Northern Ireland, more than 40 at Haverhill and further vacancies in Hull.

Karro CEO Steve Ellis 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.”
