Job Losses Possible at Bodmin Meat Factory

26 June 2013, 05:00

Meat Processors Tulp say that 150 jobs are at risk of redundancy at three UK sites, including one in Bodmin, after they failed to win a new contract.

The company, better known for their Danepak and Spam brands, have now entered into 30 day consultation with workers, with the hope that as many staff as possible will be redeployed to other jobs in the business.

Kirsty Wilkins, Tulip Ltd’s Group HR Director explains; “We are currently operating in an extremely challenging economic environment which has led to the need to announce proposed changes at three of our sites as a result of a failing to secure a tender.

“We have therefore entered into consultation with colleagues whose roles are potentially at risk of redundancy and are working closely with them to, wherever possible, lessen the impact of today’s announcement.”
