Primera Foods Closing

The new owner of Primera Foods plans to close an egg processing facility in Altura.
Michael Foods will close the plant and integrate production at a plant in Britt, Iowa. About 40 employees at the Altura plant will lose their jobs.

Less than two months ago, Michael Foods subsidiary M.G. Waldbaum Co. closed on the purchase of Primera Foods Corp. for nearly $36 million.

A Michael Foods executive says employees who will lose their jobs are encouraged to apply for other positions at Michael Foods, which is based in Minnetonka.
