Additional Information

On Monday, 3 April 2017 the management of the fish group A. Espersen, informed the Cooperation Committee at the factory in Fredericia, Jutland that the production of processed food at the factory will be offshored to Poland. Consequently all 125 employees in production will be dismissed. Only 35 employee working in sales, procurement and product development will remain in Fredericia. According to A. Espersen a number of streamlining measures have not been effective enough to keep the production in Denmark.
