For immediate release:

MSP SEEKS LEGACY FROM 2 SISTERS FOOD GROUP

Rutherglen and Cambuslang constituency MSP, Clare Haughey, has written to the President of the 2 Sisters Food Group, Ranjit Singh, asking him to seriously consider leaving a legacy in the area. She has also requested a meeting with senior 2 Sisters Management to discuss what form such a legacy might take.

Commenting on her request to the company Ms Haughey said:

“For many years, this food manufacturing facility has been a major source of employment within Cambuslang and surrounding areas, and this closure could devastate our local economy.”

“This closure has left the workers, the community, and myself deeply saddened and disappointed, and understandably we are all worried about the affect this will have locally.”

“I am aware that other companies leaving an area under similar circumstances have done this.”

“This is a community which has loyally served the 2 Sisters food Group and their predecessors, with hard-working, highly-trained and committed staff, for over 55 years. The Group owes a debt to the Cambuslang community and this would be one way of starting to repay that.”

“The impact of the closure of the factory, and the effect on the local community and businesses, is something I personally am extremely concerned about and I have requested further dialogue with 2 Sisters management to discuss sensible legacy proposals which could ultimately be left to the people and communities of Cambuslang after the closure.”

ENDS
