MooMilk, the Maine-based organic milk company, is scaling back operations, according to a report in the Bangor Daily News.
MOOMilk, which stands for Maine’s Own Organic Milk, processed milk Wednesday but will suspend production Sunday on skim and 1 percent milk, as a variety of reasons have combined to force the business toward closure. The company’s cash flow is so low that it can only purchase 2 percent and whole milk cartons.
“We are out of money,” David Bright, MOOMilk’s secretary and one of its founders, said this week.
News Update: Portland Press Herald reports they will be staying open after “a number of individuals and foundations have provided enough money to enable the company to sell its product to two Maine food banks.”
