At the heart of the business are our people. From the farm to the factory to the retail shelf, we are all dedicated to delivering the same outcome, and that’s producing authentically made, sustainably produced food; created with passion.

We call it ‘delivering the exceptional’ and it’s a code of conduct that each and every one of us fiercely defends and strives for. 

We were founded on expertise but, more than anything, we are a company of entrepreneurs. Cranswick stands for determination and good, old-fashioned ambition, seeking out the next opportunity, encouraging a culture that allows great, commercially focused ideas to flourish.

Named one of Britain’s Most Admired Companies in 2018, we endeavour to be a destination employer. Each of our sites are unique, yet our guiding principles of Quality, Value, Innovation and People shine through. 

We have well invested, industry leading facilities and an ambitious growth plan which has enabled us to create a work place with opportunities where people can progress and develop their careers. Whether that be in our Technical, Production, Operations, NPD, Agri, Sales and Marketing or Commercial teams; the opportunity is there if you want to take it. 

Sustainability is now at the heart of our business, and it is on our agenda to ensure that we are engaging with colleagues and local communities alike when it comes to creating a circular economy through our product life cycle. Whether it be working with local charities or hosting on site fundraisers, we are becoming increasingly aware of the impact we can make if we work together towards the same goals.


If you have the desire and ambition to work with a business that recognises its employee's as the heart of their company, then Cranswick could be the place for you. 

We are always looking formotivated and dedicated candidates to join our team. Current vacancies can be found here.
