KK Fine Foods is creating 100 new jobs on Deeside Enterprise Zone due to another major expansion project.

The £833,000 investment is due to the company winning new contracts with key customers, and will create new freezing facilities and cooking lines as well as new equipment and IT control systems to increase productivity and efficiency.

Chairman Dr Graham Jackson said: “This latest expansion is part of our strategic long-term growth plans and it will enable us to meet the growing demand from some of our key customers and we anticipate it will increase our turnover to £40m within three years."

Chief executive Leyla Edwards, who founded the business in 1987 in her own kitchen, said: “KK Fine Foods’ profile has increased considerably after winning a string of awards at this year’s British Frozen Food Federation (BFFF) Gala Dinner.

“These awards, combined with our ongoing investment in the business and high quality innovative range of recipes and dishes, is a winning combination and has resulted in significant new orders from our customers.

Managing director Samir Edwards is driving sales forward with a young and dedicated team of new product development chefs who are aware of the ever changing trends in food consumption based on global innovation.”
