Tyson consolidating prepared foods plant
Tyson Foods has announced that it is consolidating some
of its prepared foods business.
The company will discontinue production at its York, Neb., plant and shift
the work to one of the company's other meat-processing operations, consequently
eliminating 110 jobs.
Production at the plant will end on or before June 17.
"Given the dynamics of the meat business, we must continually pursue ways
to operate more efficiently," said vice president of Tyson's poultry and
prepared foods division Roy Slaughter. "After careful consideration, we have
decided it will be more efficient for another, larger operation to absorb the
work done at York."
The York plant produces uncooked meats as well as other sliced beef and
pork items for various retail and foodservice customers. The company plans to
move some of the equipment from York to the company's recently restructured meat
processing operation in Emporia, Kan.
The York facility was originally built as a pork slaughter plant in 1952,
and has since been remodeled and operated by numerous companies.
