McCormick & Co. announced it has sold its Golden West Foods poultry business, including the plant in Bossier City, La., to Continental Grain Co.
The sale price was not disclosed. The sale was closed last Friday, according to Mac Barrett, spokesman for the company.
Barrett said the sale was a small transaction and would not impact McCormick's fourth-quarter or year-end results.
Located in Bedford, Va., Golden West Foods, a wholly owned subsidiary of McCormick, is to continue to manufacture and distribute frozen breaded vegetable products under the brand name, Golden West.
Barrett said benefits for the 150 employees at the sold poultry unit are being worked out.
