Breaking News ! About 80 jobs could go at a Crewe food factory because of the knock-on effect of the coronavirus crisis. Wrights, which employs more than 600 people, has written to employees to say ‘there is a risk it [the company] will be unable to continue to provide work for all of its employees at our bakery factory and cake factory at Crewe and that it may therefore have to make redundancies’. The family-run company says it is looking at ways of avoiding compulsory redundancies. Speaking to CheshireLive today (Tuesday), chairman and chief executive Peter Wright said: “Companies have been affected everywhere and in our business it’s the airline sector. We have been doing food for the airline sector for about four or five years, but the airlines are suffering.” He said the company provided a lot of food for long haul flights.

We can look to re-employ people if it comes back.” Some areas of the company - which is most famous for its pies - have boomed.

. Mr Wright, who is the great-grandson of the firm’s founder John Wright, said the company is devastated to be having to consider redundancies - having never done it before. The company was first set up in 1926 in Stoke. Sign up to the CheshireLive newsletter Did you know we offer a free email newsletter service?

In the letter to employees the company insists no decision has yet been taken - and it asks staff for suggestions. “The company will be continuing to explore ways of avoiding compulsory redundancies and minimising the number of employees affected. Measures which may assist in avoiding compulsory redundancies include restrictions on recruitment, offering alternative employment elsewhere within the company - although at the present time we have been unable to identify any alternative roles - accepting volunteers and restricting overtime,” it states. The company has also asked employees for suggestions on ways to avoid redundancies.
