Blog: James Wilmorejust-drinks on the BBC over Britvic

James Wilmore | 23 May 2013

Britvic's plans to close three of its UK sites has caused a bit of stir, not least in the county I was raised, Essex. 

The company's Chelmsford factory is due to close as the firm presses ahead with a cost-cutting new strategy. With reports of around 230 job losses in Essex, where the company was founded, local BBC media in the area were keen to get to the bottom of the story. 

After an early morning coffee today (23 May) and a clearing of the throat, I spoke to BBC Essex about the company's plans and the wider soft drinks sector. 

You can hear the interview here at around 1hour 5mins in.
