Cromer : More Talks to Save Crab Factory

More talks are planned today to try and save jobs at the Cromer Crab Company in North Norfolk.

North Norfolk Lib Dem MP Norman Lamb will be meeting with Lion Capital, the private equity firm behind Young’s Seafood, to discuss the future of the factory.

Cromer Mayor Greg Hayman and North Norfolk District Council representatives Steve Blatch and Councillor Tom Fitzpatrick will attend the meeting in London with Ken Smialek, Partner at Lion Capital. Young’s Seafood will also be represented by their Chief Executive Leendert Den Hollander and Chief Operating Officer Peter Ward.  

The factory is at risk of closure, which puts around 230 jobs at risk.

Norman Lamb said:

“This is an important opportunity to make clear to the owners of Young’s just how strongly the local community feels about the factory and retaining the workforce.

I will ask them for more information about their plans and what the prospects are for keeping the workforce employed.”
