    C’mon Mark, now you’re just milking it. It really makes my blood curdle and my stomach churn to see the creme de la creme of dairy businesses struggling, but it has udderly nothing to do with HPC.

    Moo.

  • Classic case of a firm creaming off the profits and then leaving the workers with a sour taste – hopefully these people will soon find new pastures.

    Interestingly, Uniq did a debt-for-equity swap last year – the pension fund deficit was roughly equal to the remaining value of the business so the pension fund did a reverse take over of the employer company. That’s a conundrum – if the business effectively belongs to the employees, does it make it easier or harder to make them redundant?
