PepsiCo has said most workers at one of its US warehouses facing closure will be found jobs at nearby facilities.

The warehouse in Salem, Oregon, employs 66 people and will shut down at the end of next month, PepsiCo announced yesterday (24 January). “The majority” of workers will be offered jobs at PepisCo's Portland and Corvallis facilities, a company spokesperson said.

Some workers will remain on the payroll until March, PepsiCo said, adding that the closure “was necessary for the long-term health of our business”.

In November, PepsiCo announced the closure of a Louisiana bottling plant with the loss of 60 jobs.
