900 jobs put at risk in Corby

Solway Foods have announced that their future in Corby is at risk, putting 900 jobs in doubt.

MP for Corby, Andy Sawford, says he has arranged 'urgent' talks with Solway Chief Executive, Vipal Patel.

I have spoken with representatives of Solway Foods today. My thoughts are with the 900 strong workforce who will now all be very worried about the future of their jobs. This news comes as a shock. Solway operate in a very competitive market, they have recently lost some customers and they tell me the Corby site is ageing. Solway have told me that they will consider all possibilities, including options for staying in Corby, and I have offered to help in anyway I can.
