Mars Petcare pet food plant closing in Pueblo

PUEBLO, Colo. - Mars Petcare pet food plant at the Pueblo Airport Industrial Park is closing.

Food giant Mars Inc, opened the pet food plant in 1992 because of a $1.6 million jobs incentive package offered by the city of Pueblo.

According to the Pueblo Chieftain, Mars executives said there is less demand for pet food in the western and central areas of the country. As a result they plan to close a second plant in Joplin, Missouri.
