is closing two of its smaller case ready meat facilities as it continues to cut costs.

One of the facilities is in Jacksonville, Fla., and the other is in Columbia, S.C. Tyson’s Jacksonville plant employs about 200 people and is expected to close in January, according to a state labor department filing.

Case ready plants cut and package meat sent from other facilities

Tyson has said this year that it is closing six poultry plants, which employed thousands of workers. Several other meat processors, including Perdue Farms and Smithfield Foods, have said they plan to close packaged meat facilities of their own in recent months.

Tyson says it will try to relocate affected employees to other locations.
