Agribusiness on recruitment drive to support £80m expansion

Agribusiness Sedamyl has announced a major recruitment drive to support its recent £80m investment in its Selby plant.

The Italian family-owned group, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of proteins, alcohol, starches and sweeteners, announced the expansion of its plant last February.

The £80m development will lead to the firm doubling UK production, allowing for new product lines and an increased market for wheat grown by local farmers.

To support the growing operation, Sedamyl, which is celebrating ten years operating in Selby this year, is now on the lookout for new people to join its team.

There are a range of roles available across several areas of the business, including plant production/operatives, engineering, logistics, quality control, procurement, customer services and human resources.

The group’s workforce has grown from 40 staff in 2012 to more than 100.

Elena Frandino, managing director at Sedamyl UK, said: “It was an incredibly proud moment for us when we announced such a huge investment in our Selby plant. Our business has fantastic opportunities for growth in the Yorkshire region and we are confident that our expansion will help to broaden our product offering and reinforce our position as a leading, sustainable supplier.

“Our business is built on family values, which are at the heart of everything we do. That’s why we are so excited to be able to offer a diverse range of jobs within our team, helping to support growth and expand our Sedamyl family in the UK. Celebrating our 10th anniversary in Selby this year cements our commitment and dedication to driving career opportunities in the UK and our continued support of Yorkshire farmers and suppliers in the area.”
