The closure will hit around 325 employees at the Columbus plant. The site produces Kellogg’s Cheez-It snack, among others.
Kris Charles, vice president of communications, said: “As with any project that impacts people, these are difficult decisions. We are very mindful of the impact these changes will have – particularly to our employees, and we will help those who are impacted through their transitions.”
The closure marks part of the cereal giant’s four-year efficiency plan – coined Project K – that will slash 7% of its global workforce in total.
