CLOSURE of a sweet manufacturing company has resulted in the loss of 11 jobs from a Burgh le Marsh based packaging and distribution centre.

Stenhousemuir based New McCowan’s Limited announced it was to cease trading with the loss of 185 jobs last Tuesday.

One of its nationwide operations included Thornycroft Warehousing - a packaging and distribution centre employing 11 staff in Burgh.

McCowan’s famously produced Highalnd Toffee and WHAM bars, had been experiencing financial difficulties for quite sometime.

Administrators Grant Thornton took over in September and have announced they will continue to look at all potential options.
