Longtime New Bern employer cutting almost 100 jobs


NEW BERN, N.C. (AP) — Maola Milk and Ice Cream is closing its milk processing operation in New Bern, leaving almost 100 workers without jobs.

The Sun Journal of New Bern reports (http://bit.ly/1gK0Hn8 ) that the company is moving the processing operations to High Point and to Newport News, Virginia.

Maola has had a processing plant in New Bern since 1935. It will lay off 98 workers in late July.

The company said it will retain 30 positions at its New Bern facility where it will still have delivery trucks and administrative offices.
