Karro announces 141 job losses

Karro Food Group has confirmed that it is cutting 141 jobs at its Scunthorpe site.

The pork processor had announced that 150 jobs were at risk at the Billet Lane site at the beginning of the year. Redundancy talks and consultations have since taken place with staff, unions and local government, resulting in the loss of a sizeable proportion of the site’s 362-strong workforce.

The company released the following statement: “Karro Food Group can confirm that the consultation process in relation to potential redundancies has now been completed at our Scunthorpe site. Despite all efforts, it is with regret that 141 colleagues will be leaving the business.

“We have been in close liaison with both USDAW and North Lincolnshire County Council’s Taskforce team and together, we have put a real focus on providing a suite of training options, as well as job search support for those affected. We’ll continue to do all we can to support those leaving the business as they look for new opportunities.”
