Supply chain improvements targeted by PinnaclePinnacle Food Group LLC, which is a producer, marketer and distributor of high-quality branded food products, recently announced plans to continue improving the efficiency of its supply chain by downsizing its Vlasic pickle production into one plant in Imlay City, Michigan.

Another pickle production plant that is affiliated with Pinnacle - in Millsboro, Delaware - will stop production around the end of the year.

"It is never an easy decision to close a plant," said Tony Fernandez, executive vice president and chief supply chain officer of Pinnacle. "We came to this conclusion only after a detailed analysis of all potential options, which determined that the Imlay City plant is the most viable choice for the long term. The employees in Millsboro have been a valued part of our business and their dedication and contributions to the company are appreciated."

All employees who were employed at the Millsboro plant will have the opportunity to apply for open positions at other Pinnacle facilities during the transition. The company is also offering professional career support services.

Reporting on the plant closing, local news source the News Journal said that Millsboro was chosen as the location for the plant in part because the salt content of the Indian River matched the pickle brine, enabling easy discharge.
