Foster's EMEA may cut its workforce by up to 10% following a consultation with staff.

Foster's is consulting staff within the European, Middle Eastern and African (EMEA) division about redundancies as part of its wine review, which could see 300 jobs lost worldwide.

In a statement to just-drinks last week, Foster's EMEA said:  "We are currently going through a consultation process with all employees who will potentially be impacted by our revised business structure. We don't expect any more than 18 employees to leave the business under redundancy as a result of these proposed business changes."

The consultation process should be completed by the end of June.

Foster's spokesperson Troy Hey added: "We recognise that these times, and our own transformation process, are unsettling for some and are doing our best to support our people through the changes."

Foster's EMEA employs around 180 staff. The 25 employees of its newly-launched Nordic business will not be affected.
