Weetabix takeover

Unite says job security is key
Shaun Noble, Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

Unite has asked for an urgent meeting with the new American owner of Weetabix to seek assurances about job security.


Unite represents more than 110 members, including engineering and technical staff at two sites – Burton Latimer and Corby in Northamptonshire.


The breakfast cereal company Weetabix has been bought by US consumer giant Post Holdings from the Chinese owners Bright Food Group, which had struggled to boost sales in China.


Unite regional officer Sally Mortimer said, “We will be seeking an urgent meeting with the new owner to seek assurances on job security and to ascertain the business plan going forward.


“We want to work constructively with the new management team to ensure the success of the iconic Weetabix brand and to safeguard the future employment for our hardworking and dedicated members.”
