With worries the local economy in Leamington would have been devastated with the closure of the Heinz plant there, some smiles may be ahead for some workers and farmers.

Newstalk 1010 has learned Heinz will be making an announcement about an agreement in principle with a new supplier on Thursday.

The tentative deal would save between 30-40 per cent of the workforce slated to be laid off.

This deal is expected to be with a company that will be contracted out to make juice for Heinz.

The plant had already made juice - along with ketchup, baby food and beans.

Around 800 jobs would have been lost in June when Heinz closed up production in Leamington.
