UK supermarket chain Morrisons has announced the creation of 220 new jobs at its new fish factory in Grimsby in Yorkshire. Recruitment is underway to fill the vacancies. Jobs in the factory include production managers, skilled engineers and factory operatives. The site for Morrison’s new fish factory was formerly owned by Kerry Foods, where frozen ready meals were produced for sale to retail clients. Kerry’s closed the factory in 2012 after the company underwent a major corporate restructure. Kerry's closure resulted in the loss of 337  jobs at the site in 2012
