Ninety employees from the fire-hit Real Crisp factory in Crumlin have been made redundant, the boss of its parent company has revealed.
Just 30 workers from 120 remain at the company, working at different sites, after an arson attack in September destroyed the factory.
Parent company Tayto Group said 80 people were let go in October with a further ten at the end of this year. The boss if the Northern Ireland-based company, Paul Allen, said the Pen-Y-Fan Industrial Estate factory could re-open but that it was a “long and complicated” process.
Mr Allen said the ten employees leaving no longer wanted to continue travelling so far from home and so will be leaving the company at the end of the year.
