Belgium-based bakery Lotus is going from strength to strength at its sales office in South Manchester, increasing headcount from one man on opening in 2006 to six this year.
With manufacturing sites across nine European locations, and the recent acquisition of Swedish company Anna’s, the group now employs 1,000 people and distributes products to markets across the world.
Lotus is currently selling across the UK from its commercial office in Manchester, to retailers and ‘out of home’ customers, and have recently introduced four new products into ASDA.
Sylvie Morton, Business Development Manager (Advanced Manufacturing & Food and Drink) at MIDAS, who is working with Lotus Bakeries to provide recruitment advice, said: “It’s great to see Lotus expanding. Every single job is a gain for Manchester City Region. The latest product introductions at a leading national retailer is very encouraging and we look forward to assisting Lotus with its future recruitment requirements.”
