Jobs plan not that mustard
MORE than 350 jobs are at risk after consumer goods giant Unilever and Robinsons squash owner Britvic announced plans that could see their shared manufacturing site in Norwich shut down.
Britvic announced proposals to transfer production of Robinsons and Fruit Shoot from the Norwich factory to sites in east London, Leeds and Rugby for “significant productivity savings”.
The company said the 242 employees affected will be offered support.
Unilever’s review puts a further 113 jobs at risk at its unit which produces Colman’s Mustard. PROBLEMS: Melanie struggled with eating disorder and depression In the TV series In Conversation With, the star tells comedian John Bishop just how bad her relationship with food became. “I started to restrict my food to a point where I was just like – God only knows how I survived – but I think for maybe a couple of years, maybe it couldn’t have been that long, but I was just eating fruit and vegetables,” she said. “That was it. And with that workload.” Chisholm said in the show, to air on TV channel W later this month, that she had felt “guilty” about her success. “I grew up in a household where money was tight and there was nothing spare and all of a sudden you’re making millions,” she said. “I was so young and it’s a huge responsibility. It’s not about money, it’s about feeling like you have to take care of all of these people – and you just feel like you want to be taking care of yourself.” The I Turn To You singer has spoken about being bullied in the Spice Girls, but did not name names. “People can kind of make their own guesses, but there were some stronger people in the the band,” she said.
