Ripon rocked by another closure
After ConAgra’s Rippin’ Good Cookies plant was shuttered last fall, Ripon lost about 300 jobs. Now, TreeHouse Foods, which purchased ConAgra in February, announced it would close its sugar wafer cookie plant by the end of the year. Another 60 jobs will be lost.
TreeHouse has major operations in Green Bay and Manawa, as well, and the company also announced plans to close a California plant that would result in the loss of 660 additional jobs.
