Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Kemps LLC has announced that it will be closing its Duluth milk processing facility come October due to "declining milk production volumes".

The dairy product company says the decision was made in response to the "erosion of milk consumption".

Operations will be consolidated into the company’s Minneapolis milk processing facility.

Officials with Kemps say Franklin Foods has had a long history of successful operations and provided excellence in customer service and are grateful to all of the Franklin Foods employees for their hard work and dedication.

Kemps LLC is a St. Paul, MN based manufacturer and distributor of dairy products and frozen desserts. Kemps is a wholly owned subsidiary of Dairy Farmers of America.
