NEW LONDON, Wis. (WTAQ) - A Canadian cheese producer is closing down four of its facilities, including one in New London.

Officials with Saputo say they're consolidating production into other facilities to improve efficiency.

The New London plant will close by August 23rd. 67 people will lose their jobs. Those will be given help in finding other work and severance pay. Some could have the chance to move to other Saputo plants.

The three other plants shutting down are in Hancock, Md., along with Wetaskiwin and Glenwood, Alberta.
