Buyer Pays $13M For Closed Indiana Food Plant
CAMBRIDGE CITY, Ind. (AP) — A food-processing company from Ohio is buying an eastern Indiana plant where an organic food company had planned to have 1,000 workers before shutting down last year.
Wayne County attorney Ron Cross says Sugar Creek Packing Co.'s $13 million bid was the only one submitted for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court sale of the former Really Cool Foods plant near Cambridge City.
The Palladium-Item reports Sugar Creek Packing has five facilities in Ohio and Kansas and prepares a variety of raw and fully cooked products for domestic and international customers.
Cross says county economic development officials have been working with Sugar Creek for months on the sale, but that he didn't know the company's plans for the Cambridge City plant. The plant had about 130 workers when it closed.
