Food giant - Wattie-s-ProductsHeinz Wattie’s is expected to make an announcement soon, canning jobs in New Zealand as part of a wider Australasian restructure.

The company, which employs around 1900, has factories in Hastings and Christchurch but it was not immediately clear where the jobs would be shed. About 245 people could lose their jobs across Australia, Papua New Guinea and New Zealand to make the company “more flexible and efficient”.

In 2011, Heinz Wattie’s closed two Australian plants and moved the work to Hastings.
