A retired employee (who refused to give his name) walks from the Kellogg's Canada plant in London, Ont., Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2013 The plant will close by the end of 2014, resulting in the loss of more than 500 full-time jobs. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Dave Chidley
Kellogg's will close its breakfast cereal factory in London, Ont., next year, throwing 500 people out of work. The company announced that the iconic factory will be shuttered by the end of 2014 as part of a global cost-cutting strategy. "As with any project of this scope and one that impacts people, these are difficult decisions," Kellogg president John Bryant said. “We are very mindful of the impact these changes will have – particularly to our employees. As our employees and others would expect from Kellogg, we will help those who are impacted through their transitions." In addition to the London cereal plant, a snack-making facility in Charmhaven, Australia is being closed. In the same release, Kellogg announced it will expand a snack and cereal factory in Rayong, Thailand by early 2015.

Shame. Some of the jobs will go to Belleville, Ontario according to Kellogg's, and the rest will go to China, to their Yihai Kerry joint venture. They're said to be expanding a major new facility in Rayong, Thailand for cereal and snack food production, which will certainly be closing additional Canadian plants then.
