Hummus king Sabra is relocating this summer from its Astoria, Queens, headquarters to Richmond, Va., where it built a larger processing facility.
The move will be completed by Aug. 30 and 154 employees are affected, according to a notice the company filed with the New York state Department of Labor.
The 24-year-old company was acquired in 2005 by an Israeli food conglomerate, Strauss-Elite, which formed a joint venture three years later with PepsiCo called Sabra Dipping Co.
The firm has since outgrown its New York facilities at 24-20 49th St., a spokeswoman said. In addition to the Queens location, the $312 million company has two facilities in Farmingdale, L.I., one of which it will retain.
