Olam International downsizes tomato operations in Lemoore

Breaking News

"Olam has taken the difficult decision to cease its industrial tomato operations and to scale-back its retail operations at the Lemoore plant. 

This has been a very difficult decision, taken only after careful consideration of the future of the business which is facing higher costs in a very competitive marketplace. 

Regrettably, this decision will result in some layoffs. We extend our gratitude to every employee for all their hard work and dedication to the business and we are speaking directly with each individual who is impacted. 

We are assessing multiple options for the future of the Lemoore plant including exploring interest from other parties who may wish to take over operating the plant from 2020. 

Ahead of planning for the new season, we are communicating with our growers and suppliers, and working with customers to enable them to transition to alternative arrangements." 

Few days ago, the company announced its decision to cease all operations at its canning plant in Williams: “The plant will ramp down operations until all shipments are fulfilled by the middle of 2020, after which we will close the site.”
