70 jobs are at risk after the Canadian company Saputo announced it was closing its Newcastle Emlyn cheese plant. The company has said there will be a 30-day consultation.
The union, NFU Cymru, said the news was a "big blow" to the area because Saputo was "a major employer in a very rural area of Wales."
This is a major worry for farmer suppliers of this company as they enter what will undoubtedly be a period of uncertainty for their business. Many will have been through difficult times previously with Dansco, stayed loyal to the plant and to the new owners, but will see this as a real kick in the teeth that after only a few years in Newcastle Emlyn Saputo looks like it is now pulling out, obviously leaving them in the difficult situation of finding a new purchaser for their milk.
