Tyson Foods is closing down a frozen seafood plant in Wisconsin that it had acquired in a 2018 purchase of Keystone Foods.

The LD Foods plant is located in Jefferson, Wis., about 44 miles west of Milwaukee. The closure will lead to the loss of 53 hourly and nine salaried positions.

Tyson had picked up the plant in the 2018 purchase of Keystone Foods from Brazil’s Marfrig Global Foods. Tyson executives indicated that the plant did not fit its long-term business plan. The closure will be effective Sept. 16.

“The closure is due to a combination of factors, including the changing product needs of our customers,” a Tyson spokesperson told the Daily Jefferson County Union.
