Spalding factory confirms redundancies
A Spalding factory has confirmed that it will be shedding roles in the New Year.
Bakkavor Salads began a consultation in October on the future of 250 jobs at its West Marsh Road factory to ensure the site remained sustainable.
The firm has now confirmed that there will be redundancies at the site.

A Bakkavor spokesman said: "We can confirm that Bakkavor Salads has completed the consultation period and the proposal to reduce roles within one of its factories at Spalding is to go ahead.
"Whilst sadly we will lose some colleagues through redundancy in the New Year, we’ve successfully secured alternative roles for the vast majority of people impacted by the change and the number of redundancies is likely to be to be significantly lower than expected.
"We appreciate that this is an unsettling and difficult time for everyone affected and would like to stress that this decision in no way reflects the commitment and hard work of the employees at the site."
