Jobs threat as chill firm fails

Hundreds of jobs across the UK are at risk after a chilled food storage and distribution firm called in receivers.

Celsius First employs 428 staff at major depots in King's Lynn, Wisbech, Grimsby and Bristol.

The firm has a head office in Hoddesdon and sites in Glasgow, north London and Hams Hall in Warwickshire.

Administrators Pricewaterhousecoopers LLP are trying to find a buyer for the whole group which has a £50m annual turnover but has seen business slump.

The company blames the fall in their business on reducing demand for frozen food storage and a price war among operators.

Meanwhile, interest rate futures continue their march upwards. Time to raise interest rates :o

Will the staff be left with frozen pensions?

Chill out.

I wonder if there's a reqason for this. With tiny kitchenettes now the norm and shared house living now typical even for the well-paid, there's a lot of people sharing a fridge.

Fewer people will have the big deep freeze in the garage or utility room going foward. Our rented place has a fairly large fridge freezer but there's not that much space for a lot of frozen stuff. What we do freeze tends to be bread, curries and stews rather than stuff that was bought frozen.

Added to this that a lot of frozen foods are the unhealthy ready-meal junk that every lifestyle TV show is currently trying to ween the public off, well, surely there's less need forfrozen food storage.

Yes, the smaller the house the less stuff you can keep.

The Japanese saw the same phenomena in the mid 90's.
