The Kellogg Company has announced it will shut down a New York facility, forcing nearly fifty people to find other jobs.

According to the report, the company announced on Wednesday that they would be closing 40 distribution centers by the end of the year. This would include the plant in Cicero, a suburb of Syracuse,NY.

Kellogg's statement mentions that they have been forced to find different routing of distribution.

"The consumer and retail landscape continues to change," said John Bryant, Kellogg Company Chairman and CEO. "We have to change the way we reach and communicate with consumers. Because our customers' and our own warehouse distribution systems have become more efficient and effective, we can now redeploy resources previously tied to DSD and direct them to the kinds of brand investments that drive greater demand with today's consumers − ultimately growing our business and our retailers' businesses."
