Rectory Food Group employs 12 recruits

19 September 2011

Manchester-based Rectory Food Group says it's defying the odds of the economic downturn and expanding its business with the appointment of 12 members of staff. The new additions have taken the group’s total UK employees to 40.

Rectory Food Group, a leading supplier of quality poultry, red meat and food ingredients has gone from strength-to-strength over the past year. 2010 saw an annual turnover of £45 million and 2011 promises equal success with a 33-45% increase in sales compared to this time last year.

The recruitment drive is largely due to the launch of ingredients division, Rectory Foods Ingredients Ltd, established to provide the food-manufacturing sector with high quality, competitively priced food ingredients. New partnerships have also allowed for growth into new markets, which has supported company expansion.

The new recruits include Amanda Copeland and Oluyomi Tunde-Olaitan as Quality Assurance Technologists while Siriwan Hamer comes on board as a Far East Purchasing Assistant. Other appointments include Mike Tansey as Group Financial Accountant and Anabela Sequiera an Export Assistant.

Charles Woolley, Founder and CEO says: “This is an exciting time for us at the Rectory Food Group. The launch of our dedicated ingredients division, Rectory Foods Ingredients Ltd, will help drive the company forwards. Having branched out into this sector, we welcome the twelve new recruits who will all contribute to business growth as we continue to expand Rectory Food Group’s portfolio.

“The new enterprise has already secured expansion into new markets. Our poultry division is presently enjoying huge success that we hope will be emulated with Rectory Foods Ingredients Ltd. With the best possible team behind us, I’m optimistic that Rectory Foods will become a major global force in the food industry.''
