Polestar Foods Future Uncertain

1 February 2011

Some workers at Polestar Foods, that employs some 250 people in Okehampton, were not paid last week according to the BBC, and the factory has halted production. The owner, Privet Capital, said an announcement was expected later today.

Leamington Desserts, a subsidiary of Polestar Foods, went into administration in December and a buyer is being sought.

Last week it was announced 69 jobs are expected to go with the closure of Wiseman Dairy, also in Okehampton.
