H.J. Heinz Co. is closing three plants in North America and cutting 1,350 jobs in an effort to operate more efficiently.

The food maker said Thursday that it will close facilities in South Carolina, Idaho and Canada over the next six to eight months.

Heinz will shift production from these locations to other existing facilities in the U.S. and Canada. The company also said it will invest in remaining facilities and add 470 positions at five factories in Ohio, Iowa, California and Canada.

After the changes are complete, Heinz will employ approximately 6,800 hourly and salaried workers at sites across North America. This follows its decision in August to cut 600 jobs in North America.

Heinz was acquired and taken private by Berkshire Hathaway Inc. and 3G Capital earlier this year
