Bernard Matthews has seen an improvement in sales

The food producer said the number was set to rise to more than 100 in the coming weeks after a sales improvement.

Avian flu was found at the site in Holton, Suffolk, on 3 February and 2,600 turkeys died - a further 159,000 birds were culled.

Restrictions on the movement of poultry in the area were lifted in March.

A spokesman for the firm said: "Bernard Matthews is dedicated to doing everything possible to restore consumer confidence further and re-engage all laid-off employees as quickly as possible."
