Jobs threat to 80 workers at Aberdeen seafood factory
Management at Nolan Seafoods said marketplace volatility had led to a downturn.
Around 80 workers at a seafood processing factory in Aberdeen are at risk of redundancy, it has emerged.
Nolan Seafoods has entered a consultation process with staff saying market volatility and business costs have led to a downturn in profits.
A spokesman for the firm said they were trying to keep the number of job losses as low as possible.
He told STV: "We are in the process of making a company statement regarding the situation.
"We have entered a consultation period with approximately 80 staff regarding possible redundancy and we hope to minimise this number.
"This is due to a downturn in our salmon production because of a lack of supply and extreme volatility in the marketplace along with the prohibitive costs of doing business in Aberdeen."
The company is one of the largest seafood processors in the area, with around 230 workers employed at its Aberdeen plant.
Nolan was founded in Belfast in 1912 and set up its Aberdeen operation in 2002.
