A Bounty spokesman added: “After a 30-year history of working in the Diss area and having become part of the community, the decision has been difficult, yet makes business sense, as there has been natural migration occurring in recent years, with more than half of all the 45 staff in Diss already mixing travelling to work at the two offices on a regular basis.
“Employees have been provided with almost 12 months' advance notice of the change to enable Bounty to work together with individuals to explore the possibilities of part-time hours, home working or shared home and office working.
For those whot have been already been travelling between two offices, the potential opportunities for relocation will also be considered.”
The Bounty warehouse will stay in Diss.
