NABISCO TO CLOSE PENNSAUKEN PLANT IN APRIL

 PENNSAUKEN, N.J., Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The Nabisco Foods Group announced today that it plans to discontinue operations at its Pennsauken margarine manufacturing plant in April 1993.
 The company said that production from Pennsauken will be transferred to its recently relocated and expanded margarine operation in Indianapolis. The added capacity in Indianapolis will make it economically infeasible to continue manufacturing in Pennsauken after April 1.
 The closing will affect 104 employees at the 31-year-old Pennsauken facility located at 8030 National Highway. The company said every effort will be made to assist employees in seeking employment at other locations within Nabisco and with companies in the surrounding area.
 The company said eligible Pennsauken employees will receive a comprehensive severance package that includes salary and benefits continuation, and outplacement assistance.
 The 100,000-square-foot Pennsauken plant opened in 1961. The company said it is investigating other uses for the facility. If none are identified, the 10.3-acre site will be sold.
