Tulip Ltd has announced it will be making up to 150 job cuts across three of its sites, including the one on the outskirts of Boston.

The firm says the roles are at risk of redunancy across itd manufacturing sites in King’s Lynn, Bodmin and Boston – at New Hammond Beck Road, Frampton Fen – after failing to secure a tender.

Tulip has entered a consultation process with the staff affected and has promised to redeploy as many as possible of them to roles elsewhere in the business.

Kirsty Wilkins, Tulip Ltd’s Group HR Director, said: “We are currently operating in an extremely challenging economic environment which has led to the need to announce proposed changes at three of our sites as a result of a failing to secure a tender.

“We have therefore entered into consultation colleagues whose roles are potentially at risk of redundancy and are working closely with them to, wherever possible, lessen the impact of today’s announcement.”

Tulip Ltd has 17 sites across the UK and supplies bacon, pork, sausage and cooked meats to the retail and food service sectors.
