Heinz and Bakkavor Impacted by Industrial Disputes

Two of the UK’s largest convenience food processors, Heinz and Bakkavor Group, are facing disruption to production due to industrial disputes. Nearly 1,200 workers at Heinz’s UK flagship plant neat Wigan ceased production for 24 hours yesterday in protest over the company’s latest pay offer.

Workers’ trade union Unite says that further strike action may soon be announced for next week and over the Christmas period. The work stoppage at Heinz’s Kitt Green factory is expected to mean approximately two million fewer cans of meal-time favourites such as Heinz tinned beans and soups will be produced during every day of the dispute, according to Unite.

Bakkavor is also facing the prospect of industrial action over its plans to cut 170 jobs at its Bourne Salads site near Spalding early next year.
