Tulip will begin a consultation period with its employees
Nearly 100 employees are to lose their jobs at a meat processing factory in Cornwall.
Tulip Foods confirmed 98 jobs are set to go at its Redruth plant, but said its other bases in the county would not be affected.
The company employs about 2,000 people in Cornwall - with 717 people at the Redruth factory.
A spokesman said: "It's a very sad day and is in no way a reflection on the skill and dedication of our workforce."
He added the industry had too much capacity and Tulip had to ensure it was the lowest cost producer.
The firm's Launceston factory was closed in 2006.
A consultation period with workers at the plant, which supplies products such as sliced bacon to supermarkets, will now begin.
Earlier this week Uniq Foods announced its intention to shut down its Riviera Desserts factory in Paignton, Devon, with the loss of nearly 400 jobs.
