French soft drinks company Orangina-Pampryl, recently acquired from Pernod Ricard by the UK's Cadbury Schweppes group, is to lay off a further 110 jobs at its head office.
French newspaper Les Echos reports that 40 of the redundancies will come from the administrative division at the Orangina headquarters in Aix-les-Milles in the Bouches-du-Rhone region of southern France, with a further 70 sales jobs also being axed.
The company has already announced the loss of 48 posts following the closure of its Fergersheim plant in Alsace, eastern France, and the latest cuts are a result of the decision to reduce the number of administrative sites following the Cadbury Schweppes takeover.
The Schweppes France business, based in Levallois-Perret near Paris, will now be the home of Orangina-Pampryl's head office, with former HQ near Marseille retaining control of the finance, marketing and communication activities.
Following the closure of the Alsace production site, Orangina-Pampryl has three French plants - in La Courneuve, Meyzieux, near Lyons, and Nuits-Saint-Georges in Burgundy.
