Another blow to Dunedin:
350 jobs to go as Cadbury closes
Cadbury is to close its plant in Dunedin with the loss of 350 jobs.
More than 250 workers will lose their jobs by the end of the year, with the remaining 100 or so being kept on for a few months into next year before the factory closes its manufacturing site in the city.
Mondelez International announced to its workers in Dunedin this morning and said while the business had absorbed the additional costs associated with Dunedin production for several years, there was existing capacity in the Australian sites which could deliver production volumes at the same quality as consumers expected. …
My heart goes out to the 362 people & their families at Cadburys Dunedin just told the company intends to close its manufacturing operation
