NWF Gender Pay Gap Report 2017

NWF is a leading manufacturer of fresh convenient food. We supply retailers and food service companies with prepared salads, prepared fruit, coleslaw and potato salad, dressed salads, and fresh food to go products.


We are an employer required by law to carry out Gender Pay Reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017. The information below is based on the requirement date of 5th April 2017.

At this date NWF employed 1,132 people (32% women and 68% men).


NWF is experiencing continued growth and this is achieved thanks to our brilliant people and inclusive culture that values contribution from women and men. At NWF we are committed to rewarding people fairly and our pay decisions are based on market data and individual performance. These principles allowed us to have a gender pay gap that is significantly lower than the National Average.
