Nestlé has revealed plans to close its coffee factory in Hayes and plough £200m into its existing Nescafé site in Tutbury, Derbyshire.
The Swiss manufacturing food giant will close the Hayes factory in Middlesex in 2014 once it has completed the expansion of its Tutbury site.
In addition to the £200m investment announced today, Nestlé had already revealed a £110m expansion plan for the Nescafé Dolce Gusto facility at Hayes site. The restructuring will bring all Nestlé’s UK coffee production on to a single site.
The company said it would make alternative posts available for its workers in Tutbury.
“We are creating over 400 coffee manufacturing jobs at Tutbury and we will therefore have alternative jobs to offer our 230 employees in Hayes,” said Nestlé UK CEO Paul Grimwood.
“We hope as many of our employees as possible will remain with us at Nestlé.”
