Mendlesham: Premier Foods 45 Jobs To Go
It has been confirmed that Premier Foods are planning on cutting 45 jobs at their distribution site at Mendlesham in Suffolk.
Across the country the owner of Hovis says it is to close two bakeries and cut a total of 900 jobs as part of plans to overhaul business
The biggest impact will be felt in Birmingham, where 511 jobs are to be lost with the closure of a factory and distribution operation.
Hovis operations at Greenford, west London, will also close, costing 196 jobs.
The distribution sites at Plymouth and Mendlesham in Suffolk will also shut resulting in the loss of 95 jobs in total.
Commenting on the proposals, Michael Clarke, Chief Executive Officer of Premier Foods said:
“Having generated solid growth momentum in our Grocery Division, it is critical that we act to assure the long-term future of the Bread Division. By simplifying our cost base, we can increase focus on improving efficiency, quality and service levels to help grow our core Hovis business. We recognise the impact these actions will have for our employees at the sites affected. Decisions will not be taken lightly but they are necessary if we are to build a strong and successful future for the Bread Division and those who remain with our business”.
