Heinz eyes up £140m investment in the UK after 20 years and Kraft Heinz are looking to bring back their famous ketchup and other food products back to the UK with a £140m investment after 20-years.
This will be welcomed by the government to boost the economy and boost thousands of jobs, and they confirmed today that they will invest money in to a smaller manufacturing plant they operate in the North West of England.
Investment Minister Gerry Grimstone said, “The Kraft Heinz investment is a vote of confidence in the UK economy from a major US firm and a boost that will mean jobs and growth for the local economy.”
Joe Clarke, Unite union national official for food, drink and agriculture added, “This is tremendous news for the hard-working members at Kraft Heinz.
“It reflects the exceptional co-operative working that has been built upon over many years, especially over the past 12 months with everybody pulling together through Covid, keeping the nation fed throughout the pandemic.”
