Mizkan announces restructure, 87 UK jobs at risk

Mizkan is planning to cut 87 jobs in the UK, with the Japanese food group pointing to "challenging" trading conditions in the country.

Mizkan is planning to cut 87 jobs in the UK, with the Japanese food group pointing to “challenging” trading conditions in the country.

Redundancies could be made at Mizkan’s Bury St Edmunds, Middleton and Chiswick Park plants. The sites manufacture lines under brands including Branston, Sarson’s and Haywards, which Mizkan acquired from Premier Foods plc in 2012, as well as some of the company’s other products.

“Challenging environmental conditions within the UK food market have meant that a streamlining of processes, and implementing cost reductions, at Mizkan sites has become essential,” a spokesperson for Mizkan told just-food.

Employees have been informed of the potential redundancies in advance of a period of formal consultation.

Mizkan confirmed the restructuring would not affect the manufacture or distribution of any of its products.
