Kraft Foods will shut down its pudding and gels plant in Scarborough, Ontario, revealed Flex News, citing certain Toronto media reports. In line with this, 81 jobs will be axed.
This decision of the food company falls in line with its intention to enhance overall performance, a Kraft Foods spokesperson said.
The manufacturing facility in Ontario is small in size with limited equipment. After the closure takes effect in September 2008, production will be relocated to another company plant in Mason City, Iowa.
