Liz responds to closure of Fox’s Glacier Mints factory

[04/03/2019 | No comment]

I am deeply concerned that Valeo Foods UK’s Big Bear Confectionery has informed its employees of plans to close the Fox’s Glacier Mints factory on Sunningdale Road in my constituency. You can read more about the story here.

This could mean more than 200 members of staff are at risk of losing their jobs, which is devastating news for our community.

I have called on Valeo to protect jobs at the site or redeploy staff to sites elsewhere in the country. I have also urged the company to provide training and support to any staff member who cannot be redeployed to help them find alternative work. I am also in close contact with trade unions.

Anyone who is affected by this news and needs support should contact my office on the Narborough Road and I will do all I can to help.
