    Redundancies are on the cards with a proposal to reduce manufacturing at its Wiri factory in south Auckalnd.

    It's starting consultation with staff as the proposal will see 55 people go out of a workforce of 270.

    Nestlé Confectionery General Manager Martin Brown sayst Nestlé regrets that the proposal will mean job losses.
