A Gwynedd snack food company has confirmed it is to go ahead with plans to move two-thirds of its workforce to south Wales.
In a statement released this afternoon, the company says it has "no option by to relocate its operational functions."
The move will start in November. Halo says they are now focusing on supporting staff effects and has set up a 'support hub' in Tywyn which will remain in place until March.
A seven-week consultation is underway on moving some workers from the Halo food plant in Gwynedd to South Wales.
Halo says it'd mean it could grow the business and create new jobs in the future - but locals say they're worried about what it could mean for them and the town.
There is concern for more than 100 jobs at Tywyn in Gwynedd after a food manufacturing company announced it was consulting over plans to move nearly two thirds of the workforce to its base in Newport.
The Tywyn site currently employs 143 people. Halo Foods says it will remain open for staff in other sectors, and that all manufacturing jobs can be reassigned elsewhere in the company.
