Cadbury cuts 170 jobs
Chocolate manufacturer Cadbury is to cut 170 jobs at its Keynsham factory near Bristol.

The company says it hopes to shed the jobs through voluntary redundancies.

It has also announced a two-year programme to install new technology and increase efficiency.

The cuts come after Cadbury announced on Friday that around 300 jobs would go at its Bournville factory in Birmingham.

In October, Cadbury said it was going to axe 10% of its 55,000-strong workforce and close around 20% of its factories around the world, in a bid to cut costs.
