Food Service Company to Shutter Tifton Plant

TIFTON, Ga. (AP) - A food service distribution company has announced it will close its plant in Tifton, cutting dozens of jobs.

According to Nashville, Tennessee-based COI, the move will eliminate 200 jobs.

The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July to reorganize debt.

Employees were informed about the phase-out on Friday and were told the plant will cease operations by mid-October.

A company executive said affected workers will be offered a severance package. The Tifton Chamber of Commerce said it would
help displaced employees find new jobs.
