The Secretary of State for Wales said the closure of Avana Bakeries in Newport is 'very sad'.
It's very sad to hear that Avana Bakeries in Newport is set to close. The company's employees and their families will naturally be very concerned by the potential loss of a significant number of jobs and the impact it could have on the local community. We are committed to working with Avana Bakeries, the Welsh Government and Jobcentre Plus, to offer all the support we can at this difficult time. Employees who may be affected by today's announcement should contact Jobcentre Plus where they will be able to receive further help and advice.
