Wells Closes Utah Plant, Shifts Production To Iowa

Wells Closes Utah Plant, Shifts Production To Iowa
LE MARS, IA -

The maker of Blue Bunny ice cream says it will close a plant in Utah and shift production to northwest Iowa.

Le Mars, Iowa-based Wells Enterprises, Inc., announced Tuesday it would close its ice cream plant in St. George, Utah, and move production to its Le Mars facility.

Company spokeswoman Liz Croston says production and storage will move to Le Mars over several months, with the Utah plant closing by the end of 2014.

The St. George plant employed about 90 people. The plant was built in 2003.

The company released a statement saying the move would let Wells "more effectively compete in the ice cream category that has been flat to declining for several years."

Wells marked its 100th anniversary last year.
