FCOJ factory shutdown

This article was originally published in Foodnews

A MAJOR Brazilian orange juice company has been forced to mothball one of its plants. Citrosuco's facility in Bebedouro, São Paulo state, will process no fruit in the 2009/10 season and will lose more than 200 staff. Citrosuco will continue to receive and store oranges at the plant, but will consolidate its orange processing in its two other plants in Limeira and Matao, both in São Paulo state. The company bought Bebedouro, two farms in São Vicente and storage facilities in Limeira and Cortado, from Cargill when Cargill pulled out of orange juice processing in Brazil five years ago (FOODNEWS 9 July 2004). The workers' union, the Sindicato dos Trabalhadores, has accused Citrosuco of acting with "disrespect" towards its members employed at the plant.
