Halo Foods proposes merging Tywyn and Newport manufacturing sites

There is concern for more than 100 jobs at Tywyn in Gwynedd after a food manufacturing company announced it was consulting over plans to move nearly two thirds of the workforce to its base in Newport.

Halo Foods says moving all of its manufacturing to its Newport site would help make the business 'more efficient'.

The Tywyn site currently employs 143 people. Halo Foods says it will remain open for staff in other sectors, and that all manufacturing jobs can be reassigned elsewhere in the company.
