Kraft to implement Cadbury cut

Kraft has performed a u-turn on its recent promise not to close Cadbury’s factory in Somerdale (near Bristol).

The US firm said it was now “unrealistic” to reverse Cadbury’s previous decision – made before the takeover – to close the site and announced that the factory will in fact shut by 2011 with 400 jobs lost to Poland.

The Cadbury plant at Hillsborough employs around 800 and no cuts have been announced there. However, that Kraft were making reassurances about keeping the Somerdale site open as recently as a couple of weeks ago (before takeover was finalised) will no doubt be jangling nerves in Hillsborough and elsewhere.
