About the UK food manufacturing industry

Food and drink manufacturing takes place in factories ranging in size and scale, from small operations with a handful of workers to large factories that are often part of multi-site companies employing thousands of people. Larger organisations often have sites with a large geographical spread, which makes Search’s nationwide reach an attractive proposition. We have offices in Aberdeen, Brighton, Crawley, Dundee, Dunfermline, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield. Our team of food manufacturing recruitment consultant can source candidates internationally as well.

The food and drink manufacturing industry actually has many different facets. We can help you find quality staff through our extensive network of experienced and available candidates for nearly every one of these subdivisions. Bakery is the largest sector within food and drink manufacturing, closely followed by meat processing, beverages, milk farming, animal food and fish processing.

Within the food and drink manufacturing industry, health and safety is paramount and this is something that we instil in all of our candidates upon registration. Being one of the leading UK food manufacturing recruitment agencies, we take a steer from key organisations, including trade associations, major employers, trade unions, HSE (and other national bodies) when advising our clients on their staffing requirements and responsibilities and also when liaising with candidates.
