General Mills to Close Plants in Indiana, Ontario

General Mills announced two more plant closings and the acknowledgment that much of its white-collar workforce reduction - 700 to 800 people - is occurring in the Minneapolis area. The company is struggling with weak conditions in the packaged-food industry that have crimped sales and profits. To counter the downswing, General Mills last fall began two major cost-cutting initiatives that have so far led to announcements of about 1,800 job cuts. General Mills said it plans to close two refrigerated baked goods factories, in New Albany, Ind., and Midland, Ont., That raised its plant-closure tally to four since fall and will eliminate 500 factory jobs.
