Arla closes its Kißleg site in Germany

Arla Foods is to close its production plant in Kißlegg-Zaisenhofen in the German district of Ravensburg. The decision comes in response to a massive fall in prices and strong pressure from competition in international markets. The closure of the site on February 29th 2016 will affect 38 employees.

The background for the closure is a fall in demand for the hard cheese called “MonRocco” produced in Kißlegg.
