900 Jobs At Corby Sandwich Maker In Question
900 jobs are at risk at a Northants sandwich maker after Solway Foods says it might have close it's Corby factory.
In a statement to Heart, a spokesman for the company said: "It is with much regret that we can confirm the business is entering into consultations about the future of our Solway Foods production site in Corby. The consultation will explore all possibilities and options available to us, but there is a risk of closure of the site.
Despite considerable investment over the past two years, our current assessment is that on-going additional funding is required just to keep pace with the demands of a modern high-care food production facility.
The scale of this continuing investment means the site would potentially not be viable in the long term. In addition, the complexity of serving a wide customer base with an ever-increasing product mix is not a viable proposition for the future.
We are totally committed to the long-term production of the highest quality food for customers, but this must be in a sustainable and responsible way.
Our immediate priority now is to have meaningful discussions with our colleagues during this consultation period to see if other solutions can be found to help them in any way we can."
