Grocery jobs

JOBS are expected to be created in the region after grocery chain Fultons Foods went into private ownership.

The company, which has seven branches in Doncaster, is now owned by its existing management team after they were backed by Yorkshire Bank to buy out a minority shareholder.

Managing director Kevin Gunter said: “The funding will enable us to grow the business at a faster rate with a minimum of eight new stores and 60 jobs being created each year.”
