First Milk’s Maelor Plant Might Close With Huge Job Losses

16 Oct

First Milk dairy company has announced plans to close a Wrexham creamery with the possible loss of 231 jobs. The staff at its cheese-packing plant in Maelor could close by May next year following the loss of a ‘significant’ contract with Asda which has now gone to Arla’s packing plant in Shropshire.

The Welsh Government will be meeting urgently with First Milk, whilst the company have said that all possible options would be examined to try to safeguard the future of the packing facility and the jobs at Maelor.

First Milk is a farmer owned co-operative. Last year the company announced it needed to invest in new production facilities at Maelor to remain competitive. Last year the company announced a £13.5m redevelopment plan which was said to safeguard 220 jobs.
