Poultry integrator 2 Sisters Food Group has said it wants to scale back production at its Llangefni slaughterhouse, bringing with it the threat of redundancies.

The Anglesey plant employs around 650 people, as well as a number of agency workers, and was part of Vion’s estate sold to 2 Sisters in 2013.

Around the time of its purchase, 2 Sisters introduced a second production line at the plant, recruiting around 300 people in the process.

The company now says that it is consulting with employees with the intention of scaling back to single shifts.

It is understood around 200 jobs are at risk.

A statement from 2 Sisters said: “We can confirm that as a result of a strategic review of our poultry operations, we have entered into a period of consultation with our colleagues at the Llangefni poultry processing site.

“It is paramount that we simplify our business to ensure that we have the right products and processes within our factories to ensure we can sustain the high levels of quality and service our customers expect. 

“Therefore, we propose to move to a single shift operation in Llangefni as we reduce site throughput. This means some roles will be at risk of redundancy.”
