OAK BROOK, ILL. — TreeHouse Foods, Inc. has announced plans to close its ready-to-eat cereal plant in Battle Creek, Mich. Previously, the company downsized the facility and subsequently determined the remaining operations would not be economically viable. Current production will be moved to other TreeHouse cereal manufacturing plants.
Approximately 84 employees will be affected. The plant closing is part of the company’s previously announced TreeHouse 2020 multi-year restructuring program. The plan is designed to reduce costs with an eye toward improving profitability.
