Del Monte Foods closing Plymouth facility
Del Monte Foods announced Tuesday it is closing its facility in Plymouth in early 2018. The company will cease production in November and end its distribution and warehouse activities in February 2018.
Del Monte says the closure will enable the company to "align its operational capacity with current consumer demand for tomato products."
Approximately 105 full time employees will be affected when production ends on or around November 10. The warehouse and distribution activities will cease on or around February 1, 2018.
The facility will move operations to Hanford, California.
“Del Monte Foods is proud of its more than 35 years in Plymouth, and we thank the dedicated employees and the Plymouth community for its support over the years,” said Dave Meyers, chief operating officer, Del Monte Foods. “While this decision was a difficult one, we are committed to continuing to meet consumers’ ongoing demands for high quality products at a reasonable value.”
