About 200 posts are to go at the Boots site in Nottingham.

Managers at Alliance Boots said a fall in demand for products made for other companies meant it had to reduce capacity.

Bosses said the posts will go over the next two years and added they would make efforts to redeploy staff.

The division of Boots involved, BCM, currently employs 1,200 people and will now focus on own brand beauty and skincare products.

Stephen Le Hane, an HR director for the company, said: "You will appreciate that many of our customers are suffering from the recession as most companies are in the UK.

"The amount of demand they have for the products in BCM has gone down and as there are quite high fixed costs in manufacturing, those adjustments in their volume requirements for us can have an impact on the profitability and success of the BCM business."
