Land O'Lakes cheese plant in Denmark closing; Kiel plant expanding


DENMARK, WI (WTAQ) - One area cheese plant is shutting down while another is expanding.

Thursday, Land O'Lakes says they will close its Denmark facility as of July 1.

The company says its soft Italian cheese products made there have not been profitable. 92 workers will be affected by the move.

Meantime, Land O'Lakes says they will have a multi-million dollar expansion to its Kiel facility. Among the improvements in the next few years will be new milk silos, new cheese vats, upgraded whey receiving and a new vat room. No timeline has been given.
