Jobs boost for Yorkshire after agribusiness Sedamyl invests £80m in Selby plant

Yorkshire-based agribusiness Sedamyl has announced a major recruitment drive to support its £80m investment in its Selby plant.

The Italian family-owned organisation – one of the UK’s biggest manufacturers of proteins, alcohol, starches and sweeteners – announced a significant 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.

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. From just 40 colleagues in 2012 to over 100 today, Sedamyl’s workforce has continued to grow, offering long term career development opportunities for people across Yorkshire.
