2SFG plans factory closure – 600 jobs at risk


Hundreds of jobs are potentially at risk amid plans to close a West Midlands chicken processing factory.

The 2 Sisters Food Group said it was consulting on plans to close its plant  in Smethwick.

The group said the plant, which employs 630 people at Alpha Business Park, was “ageing”

“We are committed to our operations in the West Midlands and will work hard to ensure all possible options for colleagues are fully explored before any final decisions are made.”

The plant opened in 1996.
