ROCHESTER, Ind. (AP) - Dean Foods plans to shut down a northern Indiana diary plant this fall in a move that will eliminate nearly 140 jobs.

The company has notified state officials that it expects to close its plant in the city of Rochester in mid-October. The Dallas-based company says it expects the 138 job cuts to be permanent.

Dean Foods spokesman Dustin Cox tells the (Logansport) Pharos-Tribune (https://bit.ly/1SrqGC5 ) that the decision to close was made to eliminate redundancy in the company’s operations. Cox says the company will continue operations at its plants in the northeastern Indiana cities of Huntington and Decatur.

The company has had a Rochester plant since the 1950s.
