A little bit about us and our history

Jacksons is part of William Jackson Food Group, a sixth-generation family business founded by William Jackson when he opened his first shop in Hull in September 1851. Today we have a portfolio of four food businesses in distinct, yet complimentary market areas, employing over 2,000 people.

Our Corby site opened in 2018 – one of the largest investments our Group has ever made – and this will allow us to realise our ambition of being the best at what we do.

We have occupied the current site in Hull since 1907 and we now have 3 bread plants in our main bakery. We developed a second bakery, also at our site in Hull, which specialises in premium quality roll production.

We specialise in the supply of bread and other carriers to the sandwich manufacturers, foodservice, and export channels, and in 2012 we launched our consumer facing brand “Jackson’s of Yorkshire”.

We have recently won the Grocer Gold award for Business Initiative of the Year and a customer award with Coop.  This is an exciting time to join us – if we’ve sparked your interest, make this year a toast to you and apply now!
