Plaid AM 'extremely saddened' by Asda deal

Plaid Cymru AM for Ynys Môn has responded to news that Asda will not renew its contract with Welsh Country Foods.

I am extremely saddened that ASDA has not responded positively to the strong concerns expressed to them about the massive impact of their decision on the future viability of the Vion plant at Gaerwen which is so important to the agricultural community, both here on Anglesey and throughout the north of Wales.

I will therefore continue to work with the Welsh Government and the local authority to see if a new buyer can be found for this important facility on which so many jobs and hard-working families depend.

– Ieuan Wyn Jones AM, Ynys Môn
