I am concerned to hear about possible job losses at Rachel’s Dairies in Aberystwyth.
Jobs are under threat there because the owner of the company, Dean Foods based in Dallas in the US, is revising its position with regard to all of its holdings.
This means that the largest private sector employer in Aberystwyth, and an iconic business, is in danger of losing jobs.
I have called on the Assembly Government to issue a written statement, so that we can reassure the people who depend on Rachel’s for their livelihood, as well as those who consume that company’s products.
Rachel’s Dairies is one of the UK’s oldest producers of organic dairy products and the largest private sector employer in Aberystwyth so any loss of jobs would be a serious blow to the town.
