Local Cheese plant closing

(Imperial Valley Cheese is closing its doors)…They will shut down on the last day of the year.

Parent company Gossner Foods says Imperial Valley Cheese has been running at half-volume for the past year and a half. Imperial Valley Cheese has been the sole California producer of Swill and Muenster cheese. The 16 employees have been offered jobs at Gossner’s Ohio plant, but officials say none have accepted the offer. There was an attempt to purchase Imperial Valley Cheese, but negotiations apparently fell thru and the sale was never finalized.
