Employees from the boning hall in the RWM plant at Yetminster, Dorset, were convened for talks with management amid speculation that RWM lost a major contract prior to its takeover by Goodman's ABP UK group last week.

Sources have suggested that the contract could have accounted for half of production at the Yetminster plant.

A spokesman for ABP declined to comment.

RWM Group includes beef and lamb processing facilities at Langport, Somerset and Yetminster, Dorset, as well as a retail packing operation at the Dorset site. The group had sales of £204.7m (€236.6m) in 2009 and was bought by the Goodman- owned ABP UK for about £30m.
