Kellogg to close Georgia facility this fall
Atlanta – A company that makes breakfast cereals and snacks is shutting down an Atlanta frozen foods plant and laying off more than 100 workers this fall.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports a business layoff and closure listing by the Georgia Department of Labor shows the Kellogg facility in south Fulton County is due to close Oct. 10.
Kellogg spokeswoman Kris Bahner says there was no public announcement made, but the Battle Creek, Michigan-based company told stakeholders and employees about the closure nearly a year ago. Bahner says the facility “does not allow for cost-effective expansion and growth of the business.”
The closure comes after 181 Kellogg workers were laid off at a Union City distribution plant in 2017 and another 20 were laid off at the Atlanta facility in April.
