So pleased that all staff appear to have been evacuated from this inferno without any serious injuries (or worse).

Had the pleasure of a conducted tour of this factory a few months ago and witnessed the total commitment and dedication of management and all the workforce to the success of this business.

They have proved to be an excellent company, providing many much needed jobs for people from the local communities.

Let's hope that repairs and refurbishment of the factory can be undertaken asap and the workforce can help the company get back to full production.

Let's also hope that the Welsh Government and Caerphilly Council give Real Crisps total support and help to get things back into production.

Haha, that's funny. Perhaps a load of people lost their jobs too?
