Axe hangs over Welsh Country Foods' Anglesey lamb plant

One of Wales' largest meat processing plants, employing 350 people, is under threat of closure.

The Dutch owners of Welsh Country Foods at Gaerwen on Anglesey say the loss of a major contract with the supermarket chain Asda puts its future in doubt.

The site processes one in six of all the lambs produced in Wales.
