Barry Callebaut, the Switzerland-based chocolate manufacturer, has refused to comment on a French court’s order for the business to halt planned job cuts in the city of Dijon.

Reports in France said today (29 April) that a court in Dijon had ordered the suspension of the company’s plans to cut over 100 jobs at a factory in the French city.

Barry Callebaut announced the plans in January, when it said the loss of two significant orders and a general slowdown in chocolate consumption in Europe were expected to hit volumes at the Dijon plant.

When contacted by just-food this afternoon, a spokesperson for Barry Callebaut refused to be drawn on the situation. “We currently do not wish to comment on Dijon,” a spokesperson said.
