General Mills to close Midland, Ont. facility
Closure will impact 100 employees.
MIDLAND, Ont. — General Mills will close its manufacturing facility in Midland, Ontario by mid-calendar year 2016.
The closure will impact 100 employees, which the company said will receive severance packages.
The facility has been operated by General Mills since 1952 and produces frozen pizzas, refrigerates dough, cookies and turnovers for the Canadian and US markets.
The company has also announced preliminary plans to shutter its New Albany, Ind. facility by 2016. The decision is subject to negotiation with union officials, General Mills said, and should it become final, would impact 400 employees.
The New Albany plant makes refrigerated baked goods and has been in operation since 1959.
