Avana Bakeries: Jobs threat as Newport site set to close

About 150 people face losing their jobs at a Newport bakery under plans to close the site.

Food Utopia said it was consulting on plans to end production at Avana Bakeries in Rogerstone by the end of January as it had been "unable to make sufficient progress in an increasingly competitive market".

John James from the Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union said staff were "like a family".
