Kraft Heinz to Close Lehigh Valley Factory After Decades

A Lehigh Valley factory that has made products for the Kraft Heinz company for more than 40 years is set to close.

Kraft Heinz Co. spokesman Michael Mullen told the Allentown Morning Call that the plant in Upper Macungie will close by Nov. 18.

"We remain committed to making this transition as seamless as possible, and thank our employees for their hard work and commitment to the facility," Mullen wrote in an email.

The plant most recently made Grey Poupon mustard, A.1. Steak Sauce, and Tassimo coffee products.

Mullen did not say how many employees remain at the factory. The company said in May that 341 employees would lose their jobs. Layoffs began in July.
