Scottish confectionary group collapses

149 jobs lost as PwC administrators called in

Administrators from PricewaterhouseCoopers have been called in at Millar
McCowan, the Scottish sugar confectionary company.

Millar McCowan was formed in mid 2005 when the businesses and assets of two
well known Scottish confectionery brands were acquired out of receivership.

The company turns over approximately £8m per annum and had employed 71 staff
at its factory in Stenhousemuir and 86 staff at the Broxburn site.

PwC administrator Graham Martin said it was with regret that the decision was
taken to close manufacturing at both sites with the loss of 149 jobs.

‘Eight staff are being retained in the short term,’ he said.
