Abel & Cole

We at Active Staff have had the amazing opportunity to become the only Local Recruitment Agency to provide staff to Abel & Cole, alongside the National Agency, Stafforce.

Abel & Cole is a well-known, organic food company located in Andover. Abel & Cole specialises in organic food and drink and has been producing high-quality, ethnically sourced produce since 1988.

They believe that organic is the very best way to go. It protects our countryside and the animals that inhabit it, insists on the very best animal welfare, and supports.

Abel & Coles deliver a wide range of fantastic organic food to people's homes across much of England. Our customers care about fantastic, healthy food and the people who grow and make it and they offer them a refreshing, ethical alternative to boring supermarket shopping.

They are entrepreneurial, agile, genuine and irreverent. They deliver to around 80,000 households and employ just over 600 great people.

Abel & Cole are an amazing company to work both with and for. The staff we provide will be given all of the required training needed to a high standard, and receive added bonuses, such as receiving a fresh, organic bag of fruit and vegetables every Thursday.

The days are from Sunday - Thursday with two different shift patterns of either 5:30am-2:00pm or 2:00pm-10:00pm, however the Hygiene department do work from Monday - Friday 8:30am - 5:00pm.

Different pay rates are available within the extensive departments
Different departments have different pay rates and Abel & Cole can provide ongoing temporary, ad-hoc, long term positions and potential permanent roles.

There are multiple roles you can be placed in, including:

Production: in which you will be part of a production line packing boxes with specific fruit and vegetables

Chill: this is work inside the chilled freezers where you will be putting the fruit and vegetables or meat and fish inside and taking them out.

Feeders: as a feeder, you will be working with Carrots, potatoes and other heavier vegetables and 'feeding' the machines with the vegetables to be packaged

Goods in and Out: you will be loading and unloading vehicles and you would need to have good communication and organisation skills, basic English and the ability to lift heavy items.

Hygiene: The hygiene department focuses on operating the 'Clean as You Go' Policy and provides all of the production and working areas with a clean, fresh environment to work within.

There are also many more departments that Abel & Cole are looking to fill, including roles in their Meat and Fish, Yard and Gel pack departments.
