SHAREHOLDERS in Irn-Bru maker AG Barr have been told they will not be able to attend the company’s forthcoming annual meeting in person.

The soft drinks giant said continuing restrictions to halt the spread of coronavirus dictates the AGM will be held behind closed doors at its Cumbernauld headquarters on June 25. It encouraged shareholders to vote on resolutions tabled by the board using their proxy forms. Details were contained in the AGM notice. Barr said the meeting would be convened with the minimum necessary quorum of two shareholders.

Meanwhile, Tennent’s Lager owner C&C Group admits some staff in Scotland may not switch from Glasgow to Edinburgh following a review of its supply chain and distribution operation. The review will result in Tennent’s opening a new 50,000 square foot warehouse and distribution in Newbridge, near Edinburgh. However, it will consolidate its Matthew Clark Glasgow warehouse and transport operation into the Tennent’s facility in Cambuslang and the Newbridge site. C&C’s Andrea Pozzi said: “While overall we are creating a small number of new roles, we recognise that some colleagues in Glasgow may decide that they are unable to transfer to our new facility in Edinburgh.”
