Food Wholesaler Creating 150 New Jobs In Derby

Ocean King, a food wholesaler and distributor, is creating 150 new full and part time jobs in Derby.

The Loughborough-based firm is set to open new operations at a 2,600 square metre distribution hub at Victory Park in a move which will create dozens of jobs for students and locals in the area.

The company is investing £5 million in the new Derby unit which is anticipated to be ready by December this year.

Ocean King, which supplies fresh and frozen food to the restaurant sector, started off from pretty basic beginnings as a ‘man and van’ enterprise towards the end of the 1990s.

Kicking off the recruitment drive for new staff in Derby, Steven Thai, Ocean King’s managing director, said: “This move will open up 150 jobs for the people of Derby. We will be employing a full team ranging from senior leaders to forklift drivers and HGV drivers.”

“From our humble beginnings as Vietnamese immigrants, we are proud of this achievement and look to continue to ‘create opportunities and enrich the lives’ of all those associated with Ocean King.”

“Having just celebrated our 25th anniversary this year, Ocean King is incredibly excited to be coming to Derby.”

“On top of our established food service business, our investment of £5 million in this brand-new premises will allow us to actuate our dreams of having a state-of-the-art well-being centre for our employees and also a business hub bringing together like-minded people,” added Mr Thai.
