Apple supplier Foxconn will reopen its shuttered iPhone manufacturing facility in India on January 12, government officials and a legislator in the southern region where the plant is located said.
The Foxconn plant, near Chennai in Tamil Nadu state, was closed on December 18 following protests in the wake of a food poisoning incident. Apple has since placed the factory on probation after discovering that some dormitories and dining rooms for workers failed to meet required standards.
Foxconn and Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
