'Future secured' for Tulip meat manufacturer in Bodmin as jobs saved

More than 200 jobs have been saved after a deal was struck to secure the future of meat manufacturer Tulip Foods.

The company started a consultation process over proposed redundancies in October after announcing it was looking to end production at its Bodmin site.

After what the company called "extensive discussions" across the company, Tulip say 49 people will now be made redundant due to changes to shift patterns and working arrangements

They added that the agreement will involve "several operational adjustments".

The company is the town's largest employer and produces pork, bacon and cooked meats.

It is not the first time jobs have been under threat at the factory, in 2016 430 jobs were under threat, while in 2017 more than 100 jobs were also set to go.
