Bakkavor joins forces with Stagecoach to support Newark, Boston and Holbeach sites
Bakkavor, the UK’s leading manufacturer of fresh prepared food, has joined forces with Stagecoach to provide a bus service to support colleagues working at its sites in Newark, Boston and Holbeach.
The daily bus service, covering five routes, began on Monday and covers day, evening and night shifts.
The initiative sees Bakkavor subsidise the cost of travel for its workers to help them get to and from work during the autumn and winter months.
Bakkavor has announced a major jobs boost for the region, currently recruiting for 1,500 jobs nationally — with 196 roles in Newark, 100 roles in Boston, and 143 in Holbeach.
Donna-Maria Lee said: “At Bakkavor, we are immensely proud of our people and their hard work to maintain food supply to the UK’s leading supermarkets at such a critical time.”
