Addo Food Group-owned Poole Bakery has proposed a restructure that could put five jobs under threat.

The bakery has entered a consultation process with some of its employees at its site in Sterte Ave W, Poole, to restructure some of its departments in order to increase efficiencies.

“As part of the review, we will be looking at our team structures and there is the possibility that five jobs may be at risk,” a Poole Bakery spokesperson said.

“We fully recognise how hard this proposal is on affected employees and, should our proposals be accepted, we will work closely with those affected and, where possible, offer them new roles within the business.

They added: “We have a long-term commitment to Poole and our intention is to build a business that can continue to positively contribute to Poole’s economy and its people.”

The restructure is the first shake-up of Addo Food Group since it was sold to private equity firm LDC.

Poole Bakery is the home of the Wall’s brand and produces pork pies, sausage rolls, slices and pasties. The site supplies a number of retailers as well as customers within the convenience and impulse sectors.
