Icelandic Group to cease UK ready-meal production
Up to 250 jobs look set to be lost at a Grimsby seafood plant.
The need for significant investment in the former Coldwater West Site, twinned with a drop in demand for ready meals, has led to the move, by the recently merged Icelandic Seachill business.
Bosses have proposed to cease meal production, with dishes currently sold across the major supermarket chains, and restructure the U.K. business. It follows a review in May last year, which resulted in the flattening of the two Icelandic Group business structures in the town.
The firm will be entering into a 45-day period of consultation, and it is anticipated the process will be completed by the summer.
