It has been confirmed a food processing factory in Essex employing 528 people is to close.
2 Sisters' poultry factory in Witham will cease production in August.
The company launched a consultation over the future of the site in May.
Witham MP Priti Patel said she was "disappointed but not surprised by the news".
In a statement, 2 Sisters confirmed that 100 jobs would be redeployed to sites elsewhere in the East.
"Unfortunately, we have not been able to identify a viable alternative to closure and therefore we anticipate that the final production will be by the end of August," a spokesperson said.
"We have been able to redeploy around 100 colleagues to our other sites in the region, and more hard work will continue until the end of next month to help assist people with other local opportunities both within and outside our wider Group.
"We would like to reiterate that the tough decision to cease operations at Witham is no reflection on the colleagues at site who have been dedicated, loyal and hardworking, and we would like thank all for their professionalism during a very unsettling time."
