Kraut Plant 'GLK Foods' to close in Shortsville
Shortsville, N.Y. - GLK Foods is consolidating its plants in Shortsville, NY and Bear Creek, Wisconsin.
Production will continue in the Shortsville plant through mid-September, while shipping and receiving will continue through the end of 2018 before the plant closes.
GLK Foods says many of its Shortsville in employees will be retained through that time.
“This consolidation was an extraordinarily difficult business decision, and we recognize the huge impact it will have on our employees and their families,” said GLK president, Ryan M. Downs. “We are forever grateful for the hard work and dedication of the Shortsville staff, and we intend to support affected employees, both monetarily and through outplacement services, while they transition and search for new employment.”
The decision was made as a result of expansion opportunities at the company's Bear Creek plant.
GLK Foods is the largest kraut producer in the world.
