Muller Quaker Dairy apparently announced the closing of its Batavia yogurt plant today. We have not been able to confirm that announcement with the spokeswomen for Muller Quaker.
GCEDC issued this statement a few minutes ago.
“While we are extremely disappointed about today’s announcement by Mueller Quaker Dairy, we are optimistic that the state-of-the-art manufacturing facility will continue to play a key role in the agricultural sector in our region, including remaining a major employer.
“The Genesee Agri-Business Park where the facility is located is a community asset and it continues our strategy of building and marketing sites targeting industry clusters.
“Regardless of this announcement, we will continue to enhance the infrastructure at the Ag-Park in our efforts to bring new jobs and investment to Genesee County in the agricultural sector.
“Our immediate focus in the meantime is to do everything we can to assist the impacted employees.”
