Foremost Farms to idle operations at cheese plant in Alma Center

ALMA CENTER, WI (WTAQ) - Baraboo-based Foremost Farms is closing one cheese plant and will idle another Wisconsin operation indefinitely.

The changes will cost 100 workers their jobs.

The plant being closed makes mozzarella cheese for food-service markets and is located in Alma Center.

A cheddar cheese plant is being idled in Waumandee.

Foremost says the moves comes as it is consolidating production into its operations at Appleton, Richland Center, Milan and Marshfield.

Despite the reduction workforce, the co-op still plans to produce the same volume of cheese products.
