NORWICH – Chobani announced late last week a number of changes to its company, some of which impact area residents.
One such change involves the manufacturing plant in South Edmeston, where it was confirmed that certain employees’ services were no longer needed. It was said the changes in South Edmeston are to bring the plant more closely in line with the original design.
In December of 2013, Chobani announced similar changes, and at that time, Chief Marketing and Brand Officer Peter McGuinness would not confirm the number of temporary employees no longer needed.
Just more than six months later, additional employees have been let go, and again – a number could not be confirmed. It was said the changes will not impact production, capability or quality of the product.
The South Edmeston plant is more than 400,000 square feet and more than 300 million dollars has been put into the facility to optimize its productivity and quality.
