Headland may axe 50 jobs.

HEADLAND Foods, which manufactures frozen potato top and pasta meals at Grimsby, says it may be forced to lay off around 50 staff at its new site on Grimsby's Europarc. The company says trading is difficult and it also blames the move away from meat products, like cottage pies and the effects of the Sudan scare last year.

No firm decision has yet been reached, Headland's Managing Director Peter Wall said: "We have found trading very tough in the past 12 months and the frozen food market has been having problems since Jamie Oliver's campaign and the Sudan scare. There may be a need to cut back on general staffing levels."
