CARLSBERG boss Cees ‘ t Hart said yesterday that further job cuts have not been taken off the table as the beer giant undergoes major restructuring involving the loss more than 2,000 jobs.
The Danish brewer intends to outsource beer distribution in Britain, hitting around 900 jobs by March next year.
As a result Carlsberg UK would be left with about 950 staff across its brewery and head office in Northampton and customer service centre in Leeds.
The company has already axed more than 2,000 jobs last year as part of the restructure.
Mr ‘t Hart said additional job cuts could not be ruled out.
“You can never of course say that no cuts will be done in the future, so there are no promises on that one.
“We don’t have any other plans than we had announced more or less a year ago.”
He said Carlsberg was still “in the execution mode” of its plan, “so we’re not done yet.”
