Patch media partners WISN 12 News spoke to the CEO of the Illinois company that bought the bankrupt Golden Guernsey.
Lifeway Foods Inc., of Morton Grove, IL., bought the company for $7.4 million on Tuesday.
Golden Guernsey closed in January and announced bankruptcy, leaving more than 100 employees displaced.
CEO Julie Smolyansky told WISN 12 News the company has been needing more capacity and space than its already-cramped headquarters in Morton Grove. She is hoping to double capacity with the purchase of the Waukesha plant that is planned to reopen in the summer.
Lifeway Foods, producer of frozen kefir and probiotic cheese products, might bring back the Golden Guernsey brand of milk but anything they produce will be organic, GMO-free.
