TreeHouse Foods, Inc. subsidiary Bay Valley Foods will shutter its Ayer, MA food plant, stopping production in the first quarter of 2017 with plans to fully close the facility in the third quarter of 2017.

The facility has approximately 100 employees and primarily produces regionally branded and private label spoonable dressings. The company says the decision to close the facility is the result of ongoing manufacturing network analysis to maintain competitive costs, service levels and product quality. Products produced at the Ayer facility will be moved to other manufacturing facilities within the company’s existing network. No supply disruptions are expected during the transition.
