MALTON-based food manufacturer The Tofoo Co has announced 10 new jobs at its site on the town’s York Road Industrial Park.

The company already employs 58 people and is recruiting following recent growth which has seen its turnover increase by 200 per cent since 2017.

Each day the factory creates 20,000 packs of tofu which are now sold in Sainsburys, Tesco and Co-Op.

David Knibbs, founder and managing director of The Tofoo Co, said: “Since launching our brilliant Tofoo three years ago we have seen significant growth.

“With business progression, an exciting factory expansion on the horizon and increased demand due to the growth of the meat free sector, we need to develop and build our Tofoo family to help achieve our big ambitions.

David added: “We are a family-run business and want to offer opportunities to local people who share not only our work ethic, but also our strong values around bringing an exciting and unique product to the market.”
