Unite has criticised the proposed closure of the Cromer Crab Company with the loss of 230 jobs.

Hundreds of staff at the firm have been left devastated by the news that the famous shellfish processing company is proposing to close.

More than 230 staff were delivered this massive blow when informed of the closure by parent company, Young’s Seafoods Limited.

The people of Cromer have been proudly processing its famous crabs for decades and the firm’s closure will have an immense effect on the local economy.

Unite regional officer, Ivan Crane, said: “As the town’s biggest employer, this is a massive blow to the community and the surrounding district as alternative employment prospects in the area are minimal.

“The success and growth of this company has been built around a product that is part of the heritage of Cromer. A committed and loyal workforce is now just being abandoned.

“We have a meeting with the company later today and we will urge management to rethink the move as we believe the company has an obligation to this town. The Cromer Crab Company should remain in Cromer.”
