Closure of Young’s Seafood factory confirmed

Over 200 jobs are set to be lost after Young’s Seafood confirmed the closure of a Grimsby factory.

Plans were revealed in June to stop production at its Marsden Road site and move what remains to its other Grimsby factory on Humberstone Road and a Scottish site.

At the time the owner of Young’s, Sofina Foods Europe, said the factory was “no longer financially sustainable,” according to BBC reports.

Staff and unions were set to be consulted before a formal decision on the closure. Now, however, the business has said it has been unable to find a viable solution.

Production at the site will be scaled back and cease in late October 2023.

Some new roles are expected to be created at the Humberstone Road site in Grimsby and in Scotland at Fraserburgh.
