One of Northern Ireland's biggest companies says reports in a newspaper about plans to move operations to Great Britain are completely untrue.

The Belfast Telegraph reported Dunbia was to slash its operations in Northern Ireland because of Brexit.

But in a statement the meat processor based in Dungannon said the story's caused staff, farmer suppliers and customers undue worry and stress.

The Chief Executive of the group says management are shocked by the disregard for truth and have asked the journalist for a full retraction.

Jim Dobson said: "The headline and implications of this story are completely untrue. Dunbia has no plans to move its Northern Ireland operations to Great Britain.

"The journalist who ran the story was told it was factually incorrect but chose to run the story regardless, causing our staff, farmer suppliers and customers undue worry and stress in the process.

"We are shocked by this disregard for the truth, and have requested a full retraction from the Belfast Telegraph.”
