Anglesey abattoir in new jobs hope

Up to 300 jobs could be created at a 2 Sisters Food Group poultry abattoir on Anglesey.

The food group has entered a 45-day consultation period with the union Unite, to see if a second shift at the abattoir, which was previously owned by Vion, could be created.

If the shift is added, then around 200-300 jobs will be created, which will almost double the workforce at the site.

Meat processing on Anglesey made headlines earlier this month when the Welsh Country Foods lamb abattoir made 300 workers redundant.

A statement from the group said: “We’re exploring a proposal at Llangefni, which could – in time – create additional jobs at the site. However, this remains a proposal at this stage, and is subject to consultation in changing shift patterns on site.

“The Vion Poultry business faced a very uncertain and unviable future prior to 2 Sisters’ intervention last month. It continues to see very challenging market conditions and will need significant effort from all stakeholders in order to secure a more viable future.”
