(KNSI) - Pilgrim's Pride, which acquired GNP Company in January 2017, is closing its St. Cloud administrative office.
The company says the closure will affect approximately 30 employees.
The responsibilities of the office will transfer to the Pilgrim's corporate headquarters in Greeley, Colorado.
Pilgrim's says it has provided opportunities for many of the St. Cloud team members in Greeley and at other Pilgrim's locations.
"We will work with affected personnel to ensure appropriate support and resources are in place to assist in new employment opportunities," a statement from the company read.
"The decision does not impact our teams at the production facilities in Arcadia, WI, or Cold Spring, MN, and has no impact on our feed mill teams or grower partners."
The all cash, $350 million transaction for Pilgrim's to acquire GNP was finalized in January 2017.
