UK: Linda McCartney success fuels Hain expansion
Hain Celestial is to double the production staff at one of its UK sites after the successful relaunch of the Linda McCartney meat-free range.
The US-based natural and organic products group is to create 65 jobs at its facility in the English town of Fakenham.
The company said the move was "testament" to the success of the Linda McCartney range, which it relaunched earlier this year.
Graham Trevor, Head of HR for Hain Celestial UK said: "The fact that we have been able to create these new positions is great news for the local economy, and demonstrates our commitment to Fakenham. It also reflects our confidence in the future of the Linda McCartney brand."
