McCain Might Cut 230 Jobs in the UK
McCain UK has proposed to cut 230 jobs at its factory in Grantham, according to the Grantham Journal. If the proposal is accepted, the site will continue production with approximately 150 roles ongoing.
A spokesperson for the company, who was cited by the report, said that the proposal has been made after an extensive review of current and future requirements for the McCain UK business. The decision is set to ensure that the company continues to be an efficient and consumer-focused business that is fit for the future.
No other McCain sites will be affected by the move. The business currently employs more than 1,600 individuals across the UK.
Most recently the company has brought the new Brew City frozen brand to the UK, which includes options such as Halloumi Fries, Fiery Jalapeno Bottle Caps and Onion Straws – all which are designed to pair specifically with craft beer.
