Jobs set to go at Old Leake factory

JOBS look set to go at Old Leake company Fold Hill Foods.

The firm has started consultation with staff members, with between 10 and 19 posts expected to be cut.

The company currently employs 110 people.

General manager Brian Allen said: “Due to changes in our business with grocery customers, sadly Fold Hill Foods is facing redundancies. While this is difficult for all concerned, we are working with our loyal staff to manage this change as sensitively as possible.

“The company will continue, meanwhile, to invest in equipment and the Fold Hill and Laughing Dog brand names.”
