Frito-Lay consolidates manufacturing
PepsiCo, based in Purchase, N.Y., said 250 of the 780 lost jobs will be added to other Frito-Lay sites. The closings will leave Pepsi's Frito-Lay North America unit with 39 plants in the U.S. and Canada. Production will increase at 24 of the locations, Pepsi said. Frito-Lay's U.S staff level will remain at about 45,000.
