Coca-Cola, the American multinational beverage company, has announced its plan to shut down operations in facilities located in American Canyon and Northampton. This move is set to be achieved in 2023.
This operation should affect around 500 American workers following these closures.
This decision comes after a will of restructuration from Coca-Cola which has, since 2020, stopped the production of a number of its brands and concluded buyoffs resulting in 2,200 layoffs. Coca-Cola spokesperson said the company has to focus on beverages that are growing and have the highest potential, as people’s needs continue to evolve.
According to sources this restructuring is much deeper than prior and will put Coca-Cola’s operations in a better position aligned with consumers’ tastes.
