The Dutch company has confirmed that the plants for sale are in Sandycroft in Flintshire and Merthyr Tydfil where there are 1300 workers at each site. Over 600 workers are also employed at meat processing plants in Llangfeni and Gaerwen.
The Dutch owners have decided to sell as their focus is now going to be on their core business in Holland and Germany. Staff at all sites were informed yesterday about the sale plan.
However, while discussions have been held with interested buyers it’s still early days in terms of the sale process so we can’t comment at present on individual sites.
