Just a day after announcing the closure of processing plants in Iowa, Kansas and Texas, BPI officials have acknowledged that further cuts could target the corporate headquarters in Dakota Dunes, South Dakota.
In a statement, BPI corporate administrator Rich Jochum said the company has begun to evaluate the impact changes in demand for lean, finely textured beef will have on corporate personnel.
Monday, BPI said it would make permanent the temporary suspension of production at plants in Waterloo, Iowa, Garden City, Kansas, and Amarillo, Texas.
The move means 650 workers will be out of a job as of May 25th. Jochum says BPI will monitor the potential to restart operations at those locations.
Operations at BPI's South Sioux City plant will continue at "reduced capacity."
