Thierry’s offers voluntary redundancy

Wine agency firm Thierry’s has offered voluntary redundancy packages to its staff in a bid to cut costs.

Four staff – two each in logistics and the internal communications team – have chosen to take the terms offered.

General manager Nikki Fletcher said: “Over the past 18 months, we’ve been looking to reshape the business, focusing on selling to new routes to market.

The company was founded in 1981 by the late Thierry Cabanne and employs 40 staff. Its wine portfolio includes Mont Tauch of the Languedoc, Burgundy’s Antonin Rodet and Nicolas Feuillatte Champagne.
