Additional Information

Vion, the largest meat producer in Europe, announced it will cut 105 jobs in the Netherlands. Of those 40 will be direct dismissals, while the remaining 65 will be either moved to other locations or will leave through natural attrition. The measure is part of a so-called back-to-the-core operation, which includes a withdrawal from the UK and the sale of non-core activities.
