USA: General Mills to close Old El Paso production plant in Anthony
Minneapolis-based food giant General Mills has announced plans to close its Mexican food canning factory in Anthony on 8 March, with the loss of 253 jobs. The 44-year-old Anthony plant, situated about 15 miles north of El Paso in Texas, is the site for the production of the Old El Paso food range. General Mills acquired the site when it bought the Pillsbury Co on 31 October last year. The company has blamed the closure on declining sales in the area of Mexican food ingredients.
