Hain Celestial has said it is considering the future of a chilled desserts facility in the UK.

In a statement, Hain Daniels, the US group’s UK subsidiary, said: “Following a review of our chilled desserts business, we are proposing to make changes to our facility in Fakenham, starting in the autumn of 2017. 

“We have commenced discussions with our Fakenham desserts colleagues about our proposal. There will follow a collective 45-day consultation period, during which time The Hain Daniels Group will be discussing potential alternative opportunities for colleagues including transferring within the adapted facility and openings at other group sites. No other Hain Daniels Group site is affected. 

“No further comment will be provided at this time as we concentrate on the full consultation period and a programme of implementing the proposed changes.”

Hain employs around 500 people at two sites in the town, which is in Norfolk in eastern England.

The multi-million pound dessert factory was opened four years ago and it was confirmed at the time it would be creating a total of 350 jobs.
