KK Fine Foods, a leading frozen food manufacturer based at Deeside in Wales, is set to expand and diversify with support from the Welsh Government, creating an additional 40 new jobs. KK Fine Foods, which is owned by Belgian company TerBeke, currently employs 525 people.

The company is expanding and diversifying its production facility to supply frozen ready meals in the retail sector, having specialised in the pub and restaurant sectors. The expansion plans include up-skilling the current workforce and creating 40 new jobs, as well as accommodating a research and development centre with the potential of increasing opportunities for Welsh suppliers.

The Welsh Government is supporting the £5.5 million expansion plans with £550,000 from the Economy Futures Fund.

The expansion will further secure the future of KK Fine Foods site in Deeside, Samir Edwards, managing director of KK Fine Foods, says: “The continued support from the Welsh Government is very important during this exciting time of growth for KK. This latest expansion will enable KK to meet growing demand from new and existing customers, whilst creating over 40 new jobs for the local area. In addition to this, it will allow KK to have a continued focus on investing in our employees, through training and up-skilling our workforce. As this funding will aid the growth of our business, it will also assist in the growth of those businesses who supply KK, many of which are also located in Wales.”
