Workers 'interested' in Cadbury voluntary redundancy

'Many' workers have expressed an interest in voluntary redundancies at Cadbury's Bournville plant, as part of plans to secure manufacturing at the site for the next 25 years.

Tony Bilsborough, from Mondelez International which owns Cadbury, told ITV News: "From the beginning we were very clear that to secure this £75m investment in Bournville, and therefore the next generation of manufacturing here, that this site would need to become more cost competitive.

"Both sides agreed that this would mean fewer people working here in Bournville in the future but our preference was always to secure that through voluntary redundancies if at all possible.

"We've had consultations with the workforce and many have expressed an interest in voluntary redundancy."
