A total of 495 employees at the company's cooked meats factory at Great Witchingham, near Norwich, will be working one day less each week for the next three weeks starting on Thursday because of what the company refers to as “short term seasonal promotional demand.”

The company's factory in Holton, Suffolk, is not affected by the change in hours.

A spokesman for the company today stressed that there are no plans to make any redundancies and all the affected staff have been officially told of the temporary change in working hours.
