Court filing shows Golden Guernsey Dairy about to be sold

WAUKESHA, WI (WTAQ) - A court filing indicates that the Golden Guernsey Dairy is about to be sold, and possibly re-opened.

Accord Financial, one of the dairy’s creditors, said a bankruptcy trustee is apparently negotiating a sale of the Waukesha plant, and all the equipment inside.

One media report quoted a Golden Guernsey employee as saying a deal could be set as early as May.

A private equity firm from Los Angeles bought the dairy from Dean Foods last fall, and then closed the Waukesha plant on January 5th with virtually no advance notice. Over 100 people became unemployed – and hundreds of Milwaukee area schools that relied on the dairy had to scramble to find new milk suppliers.

The company filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy a short time later, and proceeds from the plant’s sale would go to creditors and investors.
