The breakfast cereal giant will lay off 108 of its workers when it shuts its Atlanta frozen food plant on October 10, 2019, according to the Georgia Department of Labor.

Kellogg spokeswoman Kris Bahner confirmed the company is shutting the facility, noting it had been announced internally to stakeholders and employees in October 2018.

The move is part of the company’s Project K cost-cutting program to streamline its organization.

“We made the difficult decision to close our Atlanta plant, as it does not allow for cost-effective expansion and growth the business,”​ said Bahner.

“While this decision is the right thing to do for our business, it is never an easy decision to make when people are impacted.”
