Pork processor Tulip proposes to axe 170 jobs at its Bodmin facility in Cornwall.

The business has entered into a “period of collective consultation”​ with employees and representatives at the site. It claims the moves are a “result of a significant fall in production volumes at the site due to loss of business”​.

The collective consultation period will be followed by individual consultations with those directly impacted. A spokesperson said: “We will work closely with our people at Bodmin to help to minimise the impact of today’s announcement where possible.

“Tulip Ltd remains in a strong position and the Bodmin facility is one of the finest food factories in the UK, with significant future potential to serve both Tulip and Danish Crown’s customers in the UK and across Europe. However, immediate focus will remain on supporting colleagues directly impacted by this announcement and supporting the future of the Bodmin site.”

The Bodmin site has been at risk for several years, with Tulip putting forward plans to move its cooked meat operations from the town to other sites back in 2016​.

In December 2017, the business’ acquisition of pig producer Easey Holdings​ was also approved by the Competition & Markets Authority.
