USA: Del Monte to move canned soup operations
US food company Del Monte said it is to move its canned soup operations from Iowa to Illinois, resulting in the loss of 150 jobs at the Heinz plant in Muscatine, Iowa.
Del Monte acquired the Midwest soup production operations of US food group Heinz last month.
Del Monte said it plans to add 100 jobs when it completes a US$25m upgrade at the new site in Illinois, reported AP Online.
