Hereford Times:

Avara Foods is one of the UK’s largest foods companies, supplying some of the country’s favourite supermarkets and restaurant chains. A job with Avara is a stable one – food production has been recognised throughout the COVID-19 pandemic as a key industry.

During these challenging times many British companies are reducing staff numbers, but Avara is actively recruiting across its operations as demand for poultry products remains high. Chicken is a staple product of many consumers’ weekly shops, and the company needs new colleagues at its Hereford site to help keep pace.

The company has implemented a range of measures to keep colleagues safe during the coronavirus pandemic; these include screens and curtains installed along production lines to create physical barriers, floor markers laid in canteens and other shared spaces and staggered shift start and finish times to reduce the number of colleagues coming into contact with one another.

Canteens and break areas have spaced out seating and perspex dividers and additional cleaning regimes have been enacted in high traffic areas and more hand sanitising stations installed across the site. Temperature checking of visitors, new starters and daily random temperature checking, along with a company-wide face covering policy provides further peace of mind for those working at the factory.

The company’s sickness policy has been amended in light of the pandemic too, to ensure those required to self-isolate are not unfairly disadvantaged.
