Pork Farms seeks voluntary redundancies

11 May, 2009

Pork Pie manufacturer Pork Farms is seeking voluntary redundancies for up to 90 of its 300 employees.

The Nottinghamshire-based firm said the job losses at its Queens Drive factory were a necessity, due to the adverse affects of the recession and a change in working practices. The company has announced it has now entered a 30-day consultation period.

Pork Farms said it has been discussing its required staffing levels to run the business for the short, medium and long term, with its representatives from Unite T&G for some time. The discussions were to “help us to optimise the capacity at the factory and put Queens Drive in a strong position for the future”.

It added: “The completion of the commissioning of our £11m investment in the infrastructure and equipment at Queens Drive, together with improved working processes, has released significant capacity into the factory.”
