Land O' Lakes to Close Wisconsin Cheese Plant

May 1, 2014
 
 

Land O' Lakes is planning to close one east-central Wisconsin cheese plant and expand another.

The Minnesota-based cooperative said Thursday it plans to close its Denmark, Wisconsin, plant as of July 1. Land O' Lakes says the provolone and mozzarella semi-soft Italian cheese products made at the plant have not been profitable in recent years. WLUK-TV reports there is no word on how many workers will be affected.

Land O' Lakes also announced a multi-million dollar expansion to its Kiel facility. Among the improvements in the next few years will be new milk silos and new cheese vats.

It's not known if any of the Denmark workers will be offered jobs in Kiel.

The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development has not received any layoff notices from Land O' Lakes.
