Del Monte Kingsburg plant closure

FRESNO, California

Del Monte is consolidating its peach processing operations into one plant in Modesto.

The closure in Kingsburg will result in the loss of seventy full-time and 11-hundred seasonal jobs.

The plant will remain open until all of its products have been shipped.

According to the company's website, the Kingsburg plant was built in 1915 and bought by Del Monte in 1922.
