THE owners of a mothballed Anglesey meat processing plant moved to ease concerns over its future.
Paddy McNaught, the Unite union’s regional co-ordinator, was concerned over rumours Amber Holdings Ltd intended to sell of equipment at the former Welsh Country Foods site in Gaerwen separately from the site.
Mr McNaught issued a plea to the company, which bought the site from Dutch company Vion earlier this year, to sell it as an abattoir to create new jobs.
He said: “Don’t break it up and sell it in a peacemeal fashion - sell it as a going concern so it can reopen, whether it is as a lamb or beef abattoir.”
Around 300 people lost their jobs when the suite closed in April, after Vion announced its UK pull out and the plant lost a lucrative contract with Asda.
Amber Holdings’ subsidiary 2 Sisters Food Group recently bought the Welsh Country Foods site in Llangefni.
A spokesman for Amber Holdings Ltd said while there had not been any offers or interest in the site as yet, it was being sold as a going concern .
