Re: Genius Foods is closing its Hull factory resulting in the loss of 68 jobs

Presumably the supermarkets are moving their own brand production to other suppliers who provide the products more cheaply than Genius and use the supermarket name instead. Another possibility is that the supermarkets don't want to be faced with another contamination issue as happened with Genius affecting their own brands. There were widespread product withdrawals at the time and the use of plants by Genius making both gluten and gluten free products in the same factory highlighted as a risk factor.
