The company said the site closure is slated for the end of the year to coincide with the end of the group’s lease on the facility. 

More than 200 people are currently employed at the site, which is one of nine UK manufacturing facilities owned by the company. Hain, which produces brands such as Hartley’s and Linda McCartney, said that it will be “discussing potential alternative opportunities for colleagues within the group” during the compulsory 45-day worker consultation period. 

Hain Celestial acquired Orchard House Foods from Wellness Foods in December last year. The business manufactures fruit juices and fruit-based desserts. The acquisition included two manufacturing facilities, in Corby and Gateshead.
