Selby agribusiness invests £80m to expand manufacturing capacity

Sedamyl is investing £80 million at its Yorkshire plant to double its potable alcohol capacity and add new lines for the production of liquid sweeteners.

The expansion will see the Selby-based agribusiness – which manufactures proteins, alcohol, starches, and sweeteners – create up to 75 jobs and support hundreds more in the supply chain.

The expansion plans, originally announcedin February, will also see the Italian firm double UK production, add new product lines, and provide an increased market for wheat grown by local farmers.

The firm is now actively recruiting to fill the roles, supporting its rapidly expanding workforce to support its current expansion project.

“Over the years we have built a solid reputation in Selby and are now a major local employer, and that is all down to our incredible team of dedicated staff. We know how important it is to retain the very best workers and have invested heavily to ensure we offer an attractive package and a positive workplace culture,” said Elena Frandino, Managing Director at Sedamyl UK and a member of family that has owned the business for 60 years.

“This latest development means we can continue to recruit to support our team and the local economy, whilst maintaining our position as one of the leading UK manufacturers of sweeteners, starches and derivatives.”
