Nestle To Shift Blue Riband Factory

Nestle To Shift Blue Riband Factory From Britain To Poland; 300 Jobs At Risk

Nestle will be shifting its Blue Riband chocolate biscuit production from Britain to Poland and with this about three hundred people will be thrown out of jobs.

The Swiss confectionery giant however denied the move is due to the Brexit, but the decision is based on simplifying the factory of production.

The company added that the factories will be made more efficient and hence competitive in changing external environment.

A source meanwhile mentions cost of importing ingredients have risen lately by about 15 percent after the devaluation of British pound in the wake of withdrawing of UK from European Union bloc.

Spokesman of the company said, “This move would be necessary irrespective of the decision to leave the EU.”

Blue Riband chocolate biscuit has been in production in the country since 1936 and the main target market too is United Kingdom. This mean after the shift the finished product will be exported from Poland to Britain.

Some of the consumers are learned to be boycotting the corporate giant and the unions have demanded the government to intervene in the matter.

GMB union General Secretary Tim Roache said the shift is unacceptable by them as the company is attempting to throw people’s lives and their families too just for the sake of increasing profit margins.

He added, “These factories should be exporting chocolate – not people’s jobs… The Government needs to step in before it’s too late – and reassure millions of workers across the country this is not just the tip of the Brexit iceberg.”
