HKScan, the largest meat processing company in Estonia, has announced the creation of more than 100 jobs. The company has two production units, Rakvere Meat Industry and Talleggi Tabasalu Meat Industry, at the moment. The number of employees in those has grown lately due to, for example, substituting temporary agency workers with permanent staff. In Autumn 2021, HKScan plans to open a new unit - a logistics centre which will serve all Baltic countries. The new centre will need a little more than 100 new employees, who will be recruited via a special recruitment campaign.

Additional employees have already been recruited at both production sites at the beginning of 2021. With the additional number of employees, the company hopes to survive the longer sick leave period caused by the COVID-19 outbreaks at the two sites, and to provide paid vacations and days off for their employees after the virus outbreaks.
