Bernard Matthews will close its Norfolk headquarters tomorrow after 70 years.

The poultry producer has been based at Great Witchingham since 1955 and more than 600 people are currently employed there.

Last year, Bernard Matthews reported losses of £10m, meanwhile in 2022 it reported losses of £25m. 

In January, bosses confessed the site was "no longer commercially viable" despite "investment and efforts to secure more business".

Earlier this month, they confirmed the site's imminent closure and said all staff would be offered roles at its other factories.

Mark Jaina, regional officer for Unite, the union which represents the firm’s staff, confirmed today that two-thirds of the workforce is being redeployed to other locations.

It is currently unknown which sites staff have been sent to.

Bernard Matthews has become synonymous with Norfolk through the years, even incorporating its founders' thick Norfolk accent into its advertising with the "Bootiful" slogan from the 1980s.
