US poultry group Perdue Farms has announced it will close a meat facility in Michigan in October.
Earlier this week, Perdue subsidiary Alexander & Hornung sent a letter to the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity announcing the permanent closure of the factory.
Some 132 workers will be laid off permanently on 14 October from the plant that operates in St. Clair Shores.
“The entire facility will be closed and all employees at the facility will be impacted. This closure is expected to be permanent,” the letter read.
Perdue Farms acquired Alexander & Hornung in 2020. The brand’s portfolio is focused on ham, sausages, and other meat and deli products.
According to Forbes, Perdue Farms’ annual revenue was $8bn in 2022. The company, which employs around 21,000 people, has 36 facilities in the US. It also has sites in markets including Brazil and China.
