US cereal giant Kellogg is the latest food major to announce a recruitment drive in the UK in an attempt to keep up with increased demand linked to the Covid-19 epidemic. 

In a statement sent to just-food, Kellogg said it is looking for fixed-term employees so it can increase production and get more breakfast cereal products such as Corn Flakes, Crunchy Nut, Coco Pops and Rice Krispies into UK shops as demand increases.

Paul Wrigley, the site leader at Kellogg’s Manchester factory in north-west England, said: “At this time, our focus is on making all the food we can to help feed Britain. We have an amazingly dedicated team here at our Manchester factory who are doing a fantastic job keeping things going but as demand increases, so does our need for great people.”  

Earlier today meat business Moy Park, owned by US poultry giant Pilgrim’s Pride, announced it is recruiting temporary workers at its site across the UK so production can increase.
