APPLETON -- A notice from the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD) shows Nestlé is laying off workers at four locations in Wisconsin, including a location in Appleton.

32 workers at the Appleton location are expected to be affected. Nestlé says in a notice to DWD that the company is reorganizing the Nestlé Sales and Supply Chain Frozen DSD operation and are partially closing the Appleton site.
