Fears for more than 100 jobs at Halo Foods' Tywyn site

Halo Foods is currently reviewing options to invest in its site in Newport, Wales to become a European centre of excellence for snack bars. This would mean that the business could continue to lead the market and create new jobs in Wales in the future.

Part of the proposed business development is the consolidation of its Welsh manufacturing sites under one roof in Newport "which would enable us to grow by being more efficient, cost effective and innovate in an increasingly competitive global market" said Robin Williams, Managing Director.

A 25 year lease has been agreed on the site in Newport where the newly refurbished, purposely designed site would give customers more variety and choice whilst fulfilling Halo's ambition to become a greener business.
