PRO­CESS­ING OUT­SOURCED

Western Daily Press - - News -

A FOOD firm in Devon has be­gun fly­ing some of its prod­ucts to Viet­nam to be pro­cessed be­cause it can’t re­cruit enough work­ers.

The Blue Sea Food Com­pany, in Tor­bay, said they did all they could to get lo­cal work­ers into the busi­ness, but it’s “re­ally tough get­ting peo­ple through the door”.

60 per cent of the firm’s work­ers come from the EU.

The story is in­cluded in the first of a nine episode run of In­side Out South West, the BBC’s re­gional in­ves­ti­ga­tions pro­gramme, which airs on BBC One at 7.30pm on Mon­day, Jan­uary 14. It will be avail­able on iPlayer im­me­di­ately af­ter­wards.
