(Adds details on transfer of production, jobs)
June 25 (Reuters) - Unilever said on Tuesday it would close its ice cream manufacturing facility in Henderson, Nevada, resulting in 300 people losing their jobs.
The plant manufactures ice cream and frozen novelties for brands including Ben and Jerry's, Breyers, Magnum, Popsicle, Good Humor and Klondike, said Catherine Reynolds, a Unilever spokeswoman.
"The closure of our Henderson facility is in the best long-term interest of our business," she said, adding that the facility's production will be transferred to factories in Sikeston, Missouri; Covington, Tennesse and Vermont.
Unilever, which also makes household goods ranging from Dove soaps to Knorr packet soups, said the Henderson facility's production would cease at the end of August. Employees at the plant can apply for open positions at other sites.
Unilever's shares were down 0.4 percent at 4,933.5 pence on the London Stock Exchange. (Reporting by Siddharth Cavale and Noor Zainab Hussain in Bengaluru; Editing by Maju Samuel)
