The executive at the bedside of Buitoni and Tereos employees


The Minister of Industry, Roland Lescure, will go Friday morning to the sub-prefecture of Cambrai, to meet the trade unions of Buitoni, the subsidiary of Nestlé.

While Nestlé France announced Thursday the upcoming closure of its Buitoni site in Caudry (113 employees), in the North, the Minister of Industry, Roland Lescure, will go Friday morning to the sub-prefecture of Cambrai, to meet the trade union organizations of the subsidiary of the Swiss giant.

But also those of the sugar producer Tereos (Béghin Say, La Perruche, etc.), which announced for its part, at the beginning of March, its desire to close its sugar refinery in Escaudoeuvres.

If the causes of these decisions are different - a health scandal for Caudry, productive overcapacity for Tereos -, the social consequences are significant in an already damaged job pool.

Less than 15 kilometers apart, the two industrial sites directly and indirectly support a thousand people, according to local authorities.

In this context, the executive wants to

"show the employees of Buitoni its total mobilization to seek with all the stakeholders a buyer"

, we slip behind the scenes of Bercy, which recognizes "

a strong and responsible act"

of the part of Nestlé on supporting its employees.

On Thursday, the Swiss group undertook to offer an internal or external redeployment solution in the region to all Caudry employees.

But also not to dismiss any operator before December 31, 2023.

Conversely, the government is putting pressure on Tereos.

The ministry will call on the northern cooperative to work on the

"quality of its future PES"

which will concern 120 jobs,

"at the risk of having all public subsidies removed",

explains those around Roland Lescure


For the moment, the sugar producer is working on reclassification solutions in its sugar refineries and neighboring distilleries, in particular those of Origny-Sainte-Benoite, Boiry-Sainte-Rictrude and Lillers.
