Nestlé has begun a consultation into job cuts at its York facility, the company has this week confirmed.

Although the company has yet to confirm the exact number of jobs that may be lost from the site, it did reveal that the decision was partly informed by increasing competition in the confectionary space.

According to a spokeswoman from the company, “The confectionery industry is extremely competitive and, as a business, Nestlé needs to continuously evolve to meet fast-changing consumer trends and demands.

“In order to remain competitive and continue to invest in innovation, we have made the difficult decision to consult with employees about a small number of job reductions in our York-based marketing, supply chain and project manager teams. ​

“We are working hard to support those individuals whose roles will be affected​.”
