Montreal-based Saputo will close another goat cheese manufacturing plant in Wisconsin.
The company announced Thursday they will move production from their Lancaster, Wisconsin site to their new state-of-the-art Reedsburg, Wisconsin facility, affecting about 100 employees. Saputo had already announced it would close the Belmont, Wisconsin plant.
Larry Hedrich is the manager for the Quality Dairy Goat Producers Cooperative, which supplies goats’ milk to other cheese makers. He says Saputo’s plans to close Lancaster was a surprise.
