Thirty-six jobs are under threat at a food company in County Londonderry after the firm was placed into administration.

Millar Savoury Foods, which is based in Eglinton, has been trading for more than 40 years.

It makes sausage rolls and pies, and supplies several supermarket chains.

It is understood the firm was badly hit by the rise in commodity prices but was unable to pass these costs on to its customers.

The directors called in the administrator last week.

The administrator is now attempting to sell the business as a going concern, but if no buyer is found it will close.
