2 Sisters Food Group, which is the UK’s largest grocery market supplier and one of the largest privately owned food groups in Europe, is opening a new manufacturing facility in Derby. 2 Sisters will be operating the former S&A Foods site in the city, and looking to recruit 200 new colleagues. A numbers of new roles are available ranging from production line operatives, machine minders and line leaders, stores and despatch operatives, quality assurance, hygiene operatives and factory trainers.

The factory will be producing a range of meals including kebabs, ready to cook chicken and ready to eat chicken. The first phase of production will begin in mid-March with a further phase of production in late April and May, with a view to increasing employee numbers as the year progresses.

Director Stephen Cunningham says: “We’re delighted to be able to resurrect this factory and bring new jobs to Derby. One of the things that first attracted us to the site was the close proximity to a high calibre, dedicated workforce that we knew would be able to produce some great quality food.”
