Nestlé cuts 600 jobs, closes UK factory, moves production to Europe

Nestlé is set to close its UK factory, leaving almost 600 people redundant, as it moves some of its production to Europe. 

The company said products currently being made in the Fawdon plant would move to other plants in Britain and on the continent. 

Fawdon opened in 1958 and makes candy including Fruit Pastilles. It is due to close “towards the end of 2023.” 

The GMB union called the move “sickening” and claimed that lives are benign “ruined in a ruthless pursuit of profits.”
