Vion Haverhill job loses announced
Vion Haverhill will lose approximately 180 jobs with proposals to re-organise operations of its cooked meats business with the “aim of improving operational efficiencies”.
Staff at the plant have now been informed said the company with job cuts affecting both salaried and hourly paid roles.
Vion Haverhill MD Andy Hill said, “Against a backdrop of an increasingly competitive marketplace, VION Haverhill has been undergoing a re-structuring of operations, and a programme of investment is being implemented. Unfortunately, such changes can take some time. Our focus continues to build a site that will deliver quality products to the UK market.
“We regret the need for these changes in our activities announced today and have informed our employees and their Union representatives of our commitment to consult with them. We have started the consultation process and will explore all opportunities to mitigate against job losses.”
Earlier this year Vion Haverhill suffered a minor fire in the cooked ham sector of its facilities.
