Bolsover: Food company expected to create up to 30 new jobs

More jobs are on the horizon for Bolsover after work has begun to expand the operations of a Derbyshire food company.

Holdsworth, which has been operating since 1969 and supplies UK caterers, set up a base on Derbyshire County Council’s Markham Vale regeneration site four years ago.

Now the family run firm is expanding its operations with a new warehouse and cold store, which is eventually expected to bring up to 30 jobs in the Bolsover district.

Coun Joan Dixon, of Derbyshire County Council, said: “It is great news that Holdsworth has decided to expand its operations, potentially creating up to 30 jobs.”

The county council has invested £77m to reclaim the former mining area at Markham, between Chesterfield and Bolsover, with the long term aim of creating 5,000 jobs in the area.
