FINLAND: Atria to axe 59 jobs in meat plant restructure
Finnish food firm Atria has indicated 59 jobs are at risk as its Jyvaskyla plant is restructured.
Atria hopes to "increase the efficiency of beef and pork procurement and processing at its Jyväskylä plant to improve profitability and productivity", it said in a statement.
The decision will see "overlapping functions in meat procurement and administration" axed.
Atria has estimated the revamp will generate an annual cost saving of approximately EUR5m (US$6.9m).
Staff that are to be "laid off from the Jyväskylä plant will be offered the opportunity to transfer to other Atria units", the firm advised.
