MONTREAL – More transition is under way for Saputo, Inc., who plans to close its Warwick, Quebec, cheese manufacturing plant in June 2014.

Shortly after completing its $1.45 billion acquisition of Morningstar Foods L.L.C. from Dean Foods Co. early this year, Saputo said it would exit the European cheese market, announcing plans to close its plant in Germany and proposing to shutter its site in the United Kingdom after finding business there unprofitable.

In another cost-cutting measure, the company informed employees in November it would close its Winkler, Man., facility in January 2014.

Production from the Warwick plant will be integrated into other Quebec facilities. The closing affects approximately 100 employees.
