SPAIN: Campofrio-owned Aoste in talks to close plant

By Michelle Russell | 11 December 2012

French cold meats firm Aoste, part of Spain's Campofrio Food Group, has entered into discussions with union officials over the closure of its Yssingeaux plant in the south of France.

A spokesperson for Campofrio told just-food today (11 December) that a proposal has been put forward for the closure of the Yssingeaux plant. Management is due to meet with union officials representing the employees affected on Thursday. Around 25 staff members could be affected by a closure of the Haute-Loire-based facility.

The plant produces cold meats under the Justin Bridou brand and for Carrefour in France.

In April, Aoste announced plans to close its Boffres plant in south-west France, which employed around 70 staff.
