The Body Shop Looks to Cut Manufacturing

Posted: March 7, 2009

The Body Shop, a L'Oréal-owned company, has announced plans to cut 275 jobs, many in manufacturing and distribution. In addition, the company is looking to sell its two manufacturing facilities in Littlehampton, UK.

The company reportedly will cut nearly 200 jobs at the company's head office at Littlehampton, UK. The remainder of the job cuts will be cut from manufacturing and distribution. The cuts will not affect individual stores or store staff.

The job cuts are part of a restructuring plan by company chief executive Patrick Gournay that was designed to aid falling sales. The company revealed that it may sell its two manufacturing plans in Littlehampton.
