140 jobs to go in closure of Newport firm English Village Salads
A Newport-based salad company is to close at the end of March, leading to the loss of 140 jobs.
English Village Salads Ltd (EVS) today announced it will cease trading at the end of March following a 90-day consultation period with all 178 staff.
The announcement comes after a major EVS customer took a substantial part of its salads procurement in-house.
This, combined with the ongoing challenging trading environment, prompted management to conclude the business would not be viable going forward.
