A TASKFORCE at Hall’s of Broxburn met on Monday to discuss the future of jobs and Scotland’s food industry at the processing plant.

Scottish finance secretary John Swinney chaired the second meeting of the group, which forms a co-ordinated private/public sector response to safeguard jobs at the Broxburn plant and consider other food industry opportunities.

The taskforce was established after the announcement by Vion Food UK on July 5 that it was consulting on the future of the Broxburn plant which employs 1700 people - many of them from the Journal and Gazette circulation area.
