Heinz to close 3 plants, eliminate 1,350 jobs

PITTSBURGH — H.J. Heinz Co. is closing three plants in North America and cutting 1,350 jobs in an effort to operate more efficiently.

The food maker said Thursday that it will close facilities in South Carolina, Idaho, and Canada over the next six to eight months.

Heinz will shift production to other existing facilities in the United States and Canada, adding 470 positions at five factories in Ohio, Iowa, California, and Canada. It was not clear whether Heinz's ketchup plant in Fremont would be affected.
