Austria -Closure and transfer of production -February 19, 2013

The food group Eckes-Granini-Group announced the closing of the Pago-plant in Klagenfurt. The group that had just taken over the company from Brau Union has planned to close down the venue before the end of the year 2013. Talks will be held to support the staff and to create a social plan. Eckes-Granini is outsourcing the production to France and Spain. The Klagenfurt staff is left speechless and horrified. The salaries for the next 10.5 months will be guaranteed but it is unclear how the 110 employees will cope with the crisis the branch is facing at the moment.
