ADM UK Plant To Close

ADM's UK cocoa plant in Hull is being put to bed once and for all, according to media reports. The facility, which was acquired in 1997 from British Cocoa Mills, and employs 86 people, produces cocoa butter, cocoa powder and cocoa liquor.

The company say that the move is "based on overcapacity in the cocoa processing market" and that the Cleveland Street plant will shut on July 1st.
