The 2 Sisters Food Group has announced that it is to create 100 new jobs at its facility in Derby. The company took over the site from S&A Foods in December 2015, following S&A's decision to enter administration. Production restarted at the site in April 2016 and as of January 2017 it employs 500 staff. Many former S&A workers were among those taken on by the company when the site reopened. New jobs are now being created across all levels of the business as the company looks to increase production by moving from single to double shift patterns. No information is available about when these new positions will be filled.
