Dozens of former Northeast Cooperatives employees are preparing to move across the Connecticut River to take up their jobs in Chesterfield, New Hampshire. The move follows last year’s merger of United Natural Foods, based in Dayville, Connecticut, and Northeast Cooperatives of Brattleboro.
Under the terms of the merger, which was approved by the member-owners of Northeast Cooperatives, about 250 Northeast Cooperatives jobs will be transferred to Chesterfield. That’s where United Natural Foods is expanding an existing warehouse. Managers of United Natural Foods – one of the largest distributors in the country – say the company will triple the size of its warehouse and distribution center in Chesterfield.
