Greencore hiring at Stafford plant

Greencore produces items such as salads and sandwiches sold at 7-Eleven.

A Stafford County plant that produces items such as salads and sandwiches sold in 7-Elevens and other convenience stores is expanding.

In April, Ireland-based Greencore Group purchased MarketFare Foods, which included the Stafford facility off U.S. 17 near McLane Mid-Atlantic.

Greencore added 52 positions at the local plant following the acquisition and is now looking to hire another 35 people. Jobs are available in production, order selection, warehousing and truck driving. Local companies Select Staffing Inc. and Temporary Solutions Inc. are handling the hiring.

The Fredericksburg plant was built in 1973. It operates seven days a week and now employs 242 people, not including the planned additions.
