Katie Williams, John Burns at Nia Griffith MP at the Living Wage Market.

Congratulations to Burns Pet Food on leading the way on the Living Wage and becoming the Wales Living Wage Champion. The pet food firm, which is based in Kidwelly, is a major employer in the area, and pays all of its 110 employees at or above the Living Wage. As well as making and distributing nutritious pet food, Burns also has a high quality farm foods shop in Kidwelly, stocking fresh locally grown produce.

Company partner John Burns and staff Katie and Sally came to Parliament this week to take part in the Living Wage Market, organised by the Living Wage Foundation.

Nia Griffith MP commented,

“Burns Pet Food is a great asset to Kidwelly, providing  very important employment opportunities and making sure that none of its 110 employees is paid less than the Living Wage, which has just gone up from £7.85 to £8.25, I am delighted that they have achieved the Living Wage Foundation’s Welsh Champion award, which is certainly well-deserved,”
