Wythenshawe food manufacturer creates jobs
Award-winning Wythenshawe based food company, The Authentic Food Co., has recruited 70 new members of staff in Stockport and Sharston after record sales.
Authentic Food is a family-owned frozen food manufacturer that supplies ready meals and snacks to major supermarkets and thousands of restaurants across the UK and Europe.
The company has experienced rapid growth and its turnover has increased by 12% in the year to 31 May 2017. It was recently recognised as one of the UK’s fastest-growing private food and drinks companies in The Grocer’s annual Fast 50 survey.
To fulfil increased demand for its products, the business has recruited for a range of Manchester-based positions including management roles, shift supervisors and quality auditors, as well as various production positions based in its Stockport and Sharston production facilities.
Simon Cowdroy, people director at The Authentic Food Co, said: “We’ve grown significantly in the past few years, but the simple foundations of our success have remained the same: great people, great products and great partners.”
