FARMINGTON (WEEK) - Kitchen Cooked snacks will no longer be manufactured in Farmington as that facility transitions to a sales distribution center.

Parent company Utz says employees at the Farmington facility will be offered positions in the sales distribution center or other Utz manufacturing facilities.

The company says that employees not interested in those options will be provided severance and other transitional benefits.

“Notably, we want to also ensure the entire community, as well as our customers, that the Kitchen Cooked® brand of snack food items will live on and will continue to be produced at other Utz manufacturing facilities,” according to a company statement.
