Factory to closeThis article was originally published in Foodnews
GREENCORE's frozen food factory in Crosshills, the UK, will close in May with the loss of 180 jobs. Greencore makes convenience foods and ingredients, private label products and copacks for national and international firms. The plant, and a second factory, were formerly part of the Roberts Foods Group, sold to Greencore in 2000. In 2001 Greencore acquired Hazelwood Foods (FOODNEWS 16 March 2001).
