Nine people are to lose their jobs at Exeter meat firm Russell Hume after it was announced it had gone into administration. Two members of staff will be retained at the Devon site.
The company supplies pubs, schools and care homes across the country. Last month, production stopped and products were recalled after an investigation was launched by the Food Standards Agency into allegations of non-compliance with food hygiene regulations.
Chris Pole and Mark Orton from KPMG Restructuring have been appointed joint administrators to the specialist meat supplier.
