Nestlé to Cut Nearly 600 Jobs by Closing UK Factory and Relocating Part of Production to Europe | Economic news

Nestlé will lay off nearly 600 people by closing a factory in the United Kingdom and transferring part of its production to Europe.

The Swiss multinational said products currently manufactured in Fawdon, near Newcastle, would be transferred to other factories in the UK and on the continent.

Fawdon is due to close “towards the end of 2023,” he added.

The company said it was announcing “as soon as possible” to give “maximum consultation time” to colleagues and unions.

In total, 573 positions are “at risk, subject to consultation”. Most of them – 475 – are in Fawdon, with another 98 in a factory in York.

The company described Fawdon as “home to many small, low growth brands” and a factory with “a diverse and complex mix of production techniques.”

“In contrast, our factories in York and Halifax have clearer specialties and manufacture some of Nestlé’s biggest brands,” the company added.

He announced his intention to invest £ 20.2million in York to “modernize and increase production of KitKat in the city where the brand was established in 1935”.

A further £ 9.2million will be invested in Halifax to ‘equip the plant to take on the bulk of Fawdon’s current production’.
