Plans 500+ hires to ramp up operations in India
Bengaluru-based iD Fresh Food is all set to strengthen its workforce with 500+ new recruits across verticals for its India and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) operations in 2021.
The steady growth in the company’s talent acquisition is a testimony of its consistent performance and business resilience, despite the prolonged challenges of the pandemic-induced market.
As part of its commitment to foster a positive and inclusive culture, iD Fresh will look at creating opportunities for diverse sections of the society with its hiring.
The pioneering fresh food brand will adopt a focused approach to ensure gender diversity across functions, including manufacturing operations, which has traditionally been a male bastion in India.
To ensure women, who have been most impacted by the pandemic, regain their economic independence, the company is also set to launch an exclusive iD Women Network.
Earlier this year, iD Fresh had announced its decision to invest Rs 100 crore in new production plants in the Indian and overseas markets, including GCC and the U.S. The company saw a 24 per cent y-o-y growth in FY 2020-2021 and hired 150 employees across functions, including leadership positions, during the pandemic.
Women network focus to enhance women’s professional growth providing coaching and foster a culture of learning and development. We believe this can give the opportunity to cultivate the leadership values/ competencies that reflect iD’s growth. This can improve our ability to attract and retain more diverse talent.
iD Fresh Food, which started operations in 2005 from a modest kitchen in Bengaluru, currently employs 1500 people across 45+ markets.
