Kellogg Company plans to lay off more than 1100 jobs as the company closes distribution facilities in Ohio, Texas, and North Carolina, several news organizations reported Tuesday.

The Battle Creek, MI-based food company intends to close two distribution sites in Texas, cutting over 400 workers when layoffs begin this July, the Dallas Morning News reported, citing filings from the Texas Workforce Commission.

About 250 employees at Kellogg’s Cincinnati Distribution Center in Ohio will lose their positions this summer, a letter sent to the Ohio Office of Workforce Development said, the Dayton Daily News said.

Distribution centers in Charlotte and Greensboro, North Carolina will be shuttered at the same time, impacting some 500 workers, the Charlotte Business Journal reported.

Kellogg’s closure of the distribution centers and the job cuts are part of a plan to change the company’s distribution model announced this February. Similar facility shut downs and layoffs have been announced elsewhere.
