Talks on job cuts at winery

04:07, Jun 06 2014

Treasury Wine Estates, who own Matua Marlborough winery, are speaking to those affected by plans to axe about 175 jobs across their global organisation.

The Australian-based company released a statement last month announcing they would cut costs by $35 million over the next year and jobs would be cut across all regions and functions in New Zealand and Australia, so they could invest more in consumer marketing.

A company spokesman could not comment on how many jobs losses Matua Marlborough winery would suffer, but the Express understands there would be little, if any. A Matua spokeswoman would not talk to the Express about the job loses.
