Ready meals maker Greencore has been named winner of the internationally-recognised Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Gold Health and Safety Award for the sixth year running.

The award rewards the employer’s commitment to ensuring its colleagues and visitors get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.

Now the firm, which has 500 employees at Wisbech, wants to take on 70 more staff as it prepares for rise in demand for its salad-led products during the summer and as more people return to the workplace as lockdown eases.
