Genius Foods, maker of gluten-free bread products, has closed a factory in East Yorkshire, UK, with the loss of 68 jobs.
The company has cited recent changes in its European business as the reason to shut the plant by late September.
Jeremy Bradley, chief executive of Genius Foods said: “We fully understand the shock and disappointment of this announcement for all of our employees.
“It has been necessary to respond to the change in activity at Hull, and the priority of the entire Genius team is to do everything possible in the coming weeks and months to support the hard working and dedicated employees at the site.
“We have put in place a comprehensive package of practical support and advice to help secure alternative employment opportunities as quickly as possible.”
