A major food manufacturer is proposing to cut 230 jobs at its factory near Grantham.
McCain Foods (GB) Ltd announced today it is proposing, subject to consultation, to reduce the employee numbers at its subsidiary PAS Grantham Ltd at Easton. It says the proposal puts in the region of 230 Grantham McCain employees at risk of redundancy.
A spokesperson for the company said: “This proposal has been made after an extensive review of current and future requirements for the McCain UK business, and will ensure we continue to be an efficient and customer-focused business that is fit for the future.
“If the proposal is accepted, the site will continue production with approximately 150 roles ongoing. We remain committed to our operations in Grantham and the UK and no other McCain sites are included in this proposal.
“The employees at our Grantham plant are loyal and hard-working, and it’s our priority now to ensure that every affected colleague is treated with fairness and respect, and given our full support through the consultation period.”
