Milo jobs going

“The restructuring efforts will continue into January 2015 with the effective date for the redundancies being mid-January,” Nestlé stated in a news release.

“High unsustainable maintenance and production costs, along with limited growth potential and declining export possibilities, have led to the decision to reduce the scope of Milo operations in Bybrook,” Nestlé said in its release. “This will result in an import and repackaging operation in an effort to continue employment for as many employees as possible.”

Calls to the public relations officer and management for more information proved futile up to press time.

Jamaica’s high energy costs and poor infrastructure ranked the island 97th globally, or worse than civil war-torn Syria, according to the Global Energy Architecture Performance Index Report 2015 published this month by the World Economic Forum in collaboration with Accenture Strategy.

Nestlé began local Milo production in 1965 in an effort to cease imports from Australia.

Yesterday, the company said that it would continue to offer the high-energy food drink to Jamaican children and families at an affordable price.

The company also said it would offer individual counselling, training on career and financial management, entrepreneurial training and short courses at the HEART Trust/NTA to the separated employees.
