Vion meat plants deal secures 3,000 jobs in Wales


Nearly 3,000 jobs have been safeguarded at three poultry and meat processing plants in Wales after a buyout by a meat supplier.

The Birmingham-based 2 Sisters Food Group said the purchase of Vion would help the company meet growing demand.

About 300 jobs in Llangefni, 1,300 in Sandycroft, Flintshire, and 1,300 in Merthyr have been safeguarded by the deal.

But it does not include Welsh Country Foods on Anglesey which is up for sale.
