Published:  09 January, 2015

Turkey giant Bernard Matthews has announced plans to create 90 new jobs at its Great Witchingham site in Norfolk.

The company revealed that with year-round business continuing to grow, it is looking to run its South Site operation on a permanent basis.

Rob Burnett, CEO of Bernard Matthews, said: “We are delighted to be announcing the creation of these 90 new roles, which is not only good for the business it’s also great news for the local economy.

“Over the last few years we have set ourselves the challenge of returning to profitability and a key part of this is growing the demand for our products all year round - not simply at Christmas. This strategy has begun to bear fruit and we will be effectively and profitably utilising the capacity at our Great Witchingham site.”

Bernard Matthews employs 1,850 people across Norfolk and Suffolk, producing both branded and own-label poultry products for UK retailers.
