Parkam foods to close with potential loss of 119 jobs

Up to 119 people could lose their jobs by the end of the month after a company announced plans to shut a factory in Liversedge.

Tulip Foods plans to shut its Parkam Foods factory in Halifax Road, and said it will decide when the site will close at a meeting later this month.

A spokesman for Tulip said: “No firm date for closure of the site has been set, however it has been briefed that production will continue on site until at least September 27.

“Management is in the meantime working with those colleagues affected to try, wherever possible, to limit the impact of the site’s closure.”
