Idaho Chobani Plant Laying Off Workers

Greek yogurt maker Chobani is laying off workers at its south-central Idaho plant.

Chief Financial Officer Peter McGuinness tells The Times-News the lay-offs include temporary workers as well as some regular workers.

He declined to say how many workers are being let go, but he says about three-quarters are temporary workers.

He says the plant has hit its production target and is making shift changes Tuesday and Wednesday.

He says that instead of two 12-hour shifts seven days a week, production workers will operate three eight-hour shifts five days a week.

McGuinness says the company's finances are strong.
