Cereal maker Post Holdings says it will close its Modesto, California plant - which employs approximately 140 employees - and transfer production to other facilities, by September 2014. 

Closing the plant - which makes brands including Grape-Nuts and Raisin Bran - will deliver “net pretax annual cash manufacturing cost savings of approximately $14m”,​ said the company, which said last month that it was "committed to addressing our excess capacity​" and improving operational efficiency. 

Post - which was spun off from Ralcorp last year and is now an independent, publicly traded company - manufactures its cereals at facilities in Battle Creek, Michigan; Jonesboro, Arkansas; and Niagara Falls, Ontario; as well as Modesto.

Its brands include Honey Bunches of Oats, Pebbles, Great Grains, Post Shredded Wheat, Post Raisin Bran, Grape-Nuts, and Honeycomb.
