Must read

One of Cornwall’s largest employees has announced it could put around 160 jobs at risk. Pilgrim’s Europe has confirmed it plans several operational changes at two of its Cornish sites.

With factories in Redruth and Bodmin – which were formerly Tulip – the international meat and poultry company is one of Cornwall’s biggest employers. It says the changes are the result of a business review to ensure the company is sustainable long-term.

It said the proposals will help the sites remain “fully optimised” and ensure they run “as efficiently and effectively” as possible. In a full statement, Pilgrim’s Europe said both sites will be operational, including a new multi-million pound slow-cooked facility at the Bodmin site.

A spokesperson said: “Pilgrim’s Europe has today proposed a number of operational changes at its Redruth and Bodmin sites. If accepted, these changes would put around 160 roles at risk of redundancy.

“The proposals form part of the business’ ongoing review of its operational footprint to ensure that all sites are fully optimised and help deliver a sustainable long-term future for Pilgrim’s Europe. The proposed changes will ensure a skill base that will enable the sites to meet current and future customer demand as efficiently and effectively as possible.
