Battle Creek, MI — The Kellogg Co. is closing its Charlotte, NC, snack plant and eliminating two snack lines at a Cincinnati, OH, plant as part of its Project K efficiency and effectiveness program, the company reports.
The four-year program is being implemented to cut costs, which will be reinvested to support its growth strategy, according to Kellogg.
The Charlotte plant is expected to close by the end of this year, the company reports, and the Cincinnati lines will be jettisoned by that time as well.
John Bryant, president and CEO, says: “We have a compelling business need to better align our assets with marketplace trends and customer requirements. To that end, we are taking action to ensure our manufacturing network is operating the right number of plants and production lines — in the right locations — to better meet current and future production needs and the evolving needs of our customers.”
