FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- Nestlé says it's cutting 40 positions from its Fort Wayne plant as the company pivots to a warehouse model for its frozen meals and snacks.
The company says an official WARN notice to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, which says 69 employees would lose jobs, is incorrect.
The company says neither its ice cream factory nor its distribution center is closing. Instead, the company says it is exiting its company-owned frozen Direct-Store-Delivery network to "better meet the needs of retail customers and consumers."
The closure will happen in phases, starting Oct. 18.
