Only 16 months after being bought by Langmeads, Scotherbs has lost a contract with a major customer that is worth nearly half the group’s turnover, and is set to close. Langmeads say that the 250 acre operation based at Longforgan in Perthshire has been losing money for some time. Last year there were some 105 staff but now 62 people will lose their jobs. One staff member told the Dundee Evening Telegraph that; “everyone is shocked and angry. Apparently our jobs go on 15th or 16th November, which is very close to Christmas”.
