In Sweden the northern dairy cooperative Norrmejerier will close its plant in Lulea, one of its three plants, and will move the activities to its plant in Umea. The reason for the closure is declining milk consumption, low capacity utilization, large investment needs in the coming years and generally weak profitability. The dismantling in Luleå and the move to Umeå will take place gradually over the coming years. Around 60 people work in Lulea. Possibly 30 of them can go to Umea.
