Vion To Cut 820 Jobs

A Dutch-owned food group is cutting 820 jobs.

Of the jobs going, at Vion, 470 will be lost at its Haverhill site in Suffolk, 200 at Malton in North Yorkshire and 150 at Cambuslang in Scotland.

The Scottish jobs are a result of the loss of some of its business supplying deli products and ready meals to Marks and Spencer.

The remaining jobs are due to the restructuring of its abattoir and cooked meats businesses.
