Heluva Good to close cheese packaging plant

The Heluva Good Cheese packaging plant and popular country store will close this summer.

Its parent company, HP Hood LLC, confirmed Monday morning with CNYCentral nearly 60 people will lose their jobs, but they are working with their employees to help them transfer to other locations within the company.

HP Hood says customers will not see a change in the availability in the product. They explained the decision by saying it is tough to compete in the cheese business in the current market.

Heluva Good has been a staple in Sodus since 1925.
