Nestlé Proposes Factory Changes in UK Confectionery Business

Nestlé UK is proposing to make some changes to the factory operations within its UK confectionery business. These proposals span four different sites: York, Fawdon, Halifax and Girvan and may result in a reduction of 298 roles, predominantly at York and Fawdon, through 2017 and 2018. It is expected that these would be achieved through voluntary redundancies.

The proposed changes include amended and standardised shift patterns at each factory and, at Fawdon, the most complex of Nestlé’s UK confectionery sites, the transfer of Blue Riband production to a Nestlé factory in Poland. This would mean being able to simplify and focus Fawdon’s operation.

According to Nestlé UK, these proposals are being made to ensure that these sites operate more efficiently and remain competitive in a rapidly changing external environment. A 45 day consultation on these proposals will commence as soon as possible with trade unions and employee representatives. Nestlé UK appreciates that this is an uncertain time for employees and will work hard to ensure all are supported through this difficult period.
