The owners of Welsh Country Foods say that they have explored 'every possible avenue' to prevent the loss of 310 jobs at the Anglesey plant.
In a statement the company said that it was an "extremely regrettable action but, unfortunately, we have been unable to identify any viable alternative to closure of the plant."
We have had extensive discussions with a number of parties who expressed interest in buying the plant but regrettably no agreement could be reached with these parties whereby the site can continue operations on an ongoing basis.
We are fully aware of the impact which this decision will have on the local economy and the community in Anglesey but the loss of the plant’s major customer means that there is no longer a viable future for the site.
