Del Monte Foods plans to close a northern Indiana tomato processing plant with 107 full-time workers and shift its production to a central California facility.
The company announced Tuesday it would start layoffs in November as it ceases production at the Plymouth plant that makes ketchup, tomato-based sauces, and juice from concentrate. Warehouse and distribution work is expected to end by February, when the facility will close.
Del Monte said in a state filing that it expects the closing will be permanent.
The company said the closing will align its production capacity with current consumer demand. Production will be shifted to a plant in Hanford, California.
Another food manufacturer, Bay Valley Foods, said last month it would be closing its Plymouth facilities, eliminating about 150 jobs.
