Dutch Nutreco To Cut Belgian Jobs

 

Dutch animal feed and poultry producer Nutreco Holding NV (N.NUT) said Monday that it will cut jobs at its Belgian poultry operations because of the effects of the bird-flu outbreaks earlier this year.

 

Nutreco said it will cut 150 jobs in Belgium. The company had previously announced it was looking at restructuring possibilities in the country.

 

It said that it is still looking at measures at its Dutch poultry operations.

 

The Netherlands and Belgium were hit by large outbreaks of bird-flu in the spring.
