300 jobs under threat at Welsh poultry plant
Hundreds of jobs are at risk at the 2 Sisters Llangefni chicken processing factory, it has been reported.
Union Unite told North Wales’ Daily Post that a consultation will start on Monday about reducing the production lines at the Anglesey facility from two to one. The move could reportedly mean the loss of 300 staff at the site.
A 2 Sisters spokesperson said: We can confirm that as a result of a strategic review of our poultry operations, we have entered into a period of consultation with our colleagues at the Llangefni poultry processing site.
“It is paramount that we simplify our business to ensure that we have the right products and processes within our factories to ensure we can sustain the high levels of quality and service our customers expect.
“Therefore, we propose to move to a single shift operation in Llangefni as we reduce site throughput. This means some roles will be at risk of redundancy. This will help us to ensure Llangefni becomes a centre of excellence for producing chicken meat to supply the food service industry.”
