Britvic shake-up sparks job fears

FEARS are growing for jobs at Britvic's Irish operations after the company revealed it was planning a restructuring.

The drinks maker said that it was reviewing its Irish business on the back of a "harsh macro and consumer environment in Ireland".

Full-year revenue at Britvic Ireland, which makes Ballygowan, Club and Pepsi, fell within the year as grocery market sales in the Republic fell by 5.6pc for the fourth quarter. Chief executive Paul Moody, above, said that the Irish operation would be restructured to gear it up for the recovery when it comes.

Britvic employs around 800 people in Dublin, Tipperary, Limerick and Belfast.
