Nigel Adams MP said "It was a pleasure to meet with Elena Frandino, Managing Director of Sedamyl to discuss the £80M expansion plan for their main UK production facility, which is located in Selby. During the virtual meeting we discussed the importance of Sedamyl’s Selby plant – which supports the Yorkshire farming industry – and its £80M expansion plans which will double the production capacity and bring additional jobs to the Selby area."
Information on Sedamyl:
Sedamyl was founded in Italy in the 1950’s as a fruit distillery and has grown to become one of Europe’s industry leaders in grain processing, with the production of starches, sweeteners, proteins and alcohol. Sedamyl is an Italian family-run business.
The Italian arm of the business is based in the Piedmont region of Italy, and the UK division is based in Selby where the group acquired their site in 2010 with production for the UK market starting in 2012. The Selby plant processes wheat to manufacture a range of products including gluten, starch, alcohol for food & beverages and wheat-feed.
The starch industry is a fundamental link in the value chain between agriculture and thousands of products in food, feed and industrial applications. The Selby plant processes 300,000 tonnes of UK grown wheat per year making it an important market for UK farmers.
In 2012 the Selby factory employed 40 people and this has now grown to 85 with more staff being recruited over the next 6 to 8 months as the company expands production.
