The Anglo-Dutch consumer goods maker, which makes Colman’s Mustard in Norwich, said it was launching a review of its production at the plant.
“Although no decisions have been made, we need to recognise that Britvic’s proposed withdrawal would have serious implications for Unilever in Norwich,” the company said.
“The review will ... consider options for the most effective sourcing of the current Norwich product range. One of those options will include the potential closure of our Norwich factory.”
