Cadbury's to close plant in Bristol

The Somerdale plant in Keynsham is set to close by 2011. Cadbury's new owner, Kraft, says it plans to close the company's Somerdale factory in Keynsham, near Bristol. Just weeks ago it said it would keep it open! The shutdown would mean the loss of around 400 jobs. Cadbury had earmarked the plant for closure but Kraft's takeover had raised hopes of a reprieve. It is believed that, after the plant is closed, it will be moved to Poland.
