As the world responds to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, we’re continuing to play an important part in helping food manufacturers and food outlets feed the nation.
The health and safety of our team, our customers and our community is our utmost priority. Some of our staff will be working from home where possible and our teams on the road will work to the highest health and safety standards as we continue to support food manufacturers and food outlets across the country.
Thanks to the hard work and commitment from our incredible team, the clean up operation following a large fire at our site on Christmas Day is almost complete. Our services have been able to run as usual thanks to the swift efforts of Humberside Fire and Rescue Service who were able to retain the fire to one area, resulting in our processing operation being unaffected.
On Christmas Day, a large fire took hold at our North Cave site. Thankfully, the fire posed no immediate risk to the public, no one was injured or harmed and the police and fire service were swift to respond. The fire is now out and work is underway to begin the clean up operation.
This is a shocking, devastating incident for the company and everyone who works here. Despite the impact of the fire, there will be no job losses as a result and all staff are returning to work as planned.
Thanks to the actions by crews and staff at Humberside Fire and Rescue Service and Humberside Police, while the site has suffered significant damage, it is business as usual while the clean up takes place and we hope to be back up and running as normal very soon.
We are continuing to work closely with the fire investigators to confirm the circumstances and cause of this fire.
We have a great team here at Brocklesby and many members of staff have returned to work early to get us back to normal as quickly as possible.
