1,000 jobs to go as food manufacturer plans plant closure

Foods is set to close two production factories with the loss of about 1,000

group – best known for Fox’s biscuits and Goodfellas pizzas – has revealed plans to shut its
plants at Evesham in Worcestershire and Carlisle
next year.

proposed move, which follows a cull of 30 senior management jobs already this
year, is expected to generate annual savings of £10m.

company said production would be transferred to its other UK
plants, which have received more investment in recent years and offer greater
room for expansion.

factory near Plymouth
could lead to up to 175 jobs being lost.
