American food giant Kraft is to close its UK head office in the wake of its controversial takeover of chocolate-maker Cadbury’s, it was announced today.

Kraft said it will move its headquarters from Cheltenham, which employs around 400 staff, in 2011, with management and employees moving over the next 18 months.

The firm said it would start consulting with affected staff and hoped “as many as possible” would move.

Kraft said it planned to integrate its office network to be located at its Bournville site in Birmingham and at Uxbridge, north west London, which was the previous Cadbury head office.
