Re: Sale of the Company

Dear Ms. Hegarty,

I refer to a recent published article stating that Valeo Foods is up for sale and that Goldman Sachs has been appointed to oversee the sale.

I have also received a number of calls from Members expressing serious concerns and frustrations following the publication of the above article.

I would be grateful if you could clarify the following:

  1. Confirmation if Valeo Foods is up for sale.
  2. If the Company is up for sale, confirmation that an urgent meeting will take place with Mandate, to discuss in detail the impact of such a decision for our Members.

Please give the above your urgent attention and respond without delay.

Yours sincerely,

Michael Meegan
Divisional Organiser
