Dean Foods, which derived 67% of its sales from fluid milk in 2018, filed for bankruptcy Nov. 12. Wilfredo Lee

Dairy Farmers of America is lined up to buy 44 of the milk processor’s fluid and frozen plants, including most of the company’s sites in the Northeast, for $433 million.

The court also approved Prairie Farms Dairy’s purchase of eight facilities for $75 million; Mana Saves McArthur’s purchase of the Miami, Florida, plant for $16.5 million; and Harmoni Inc.’s purchase of the Uncle Matt’s business for $7.25 million.

Producers Dairy Foods will pay $3.7 million for the Reno, Nevada, facility and $3 million for the Berkeley Farms trademark.

The court OK’d the $25.5 million sale of Meadow Gold Hawaii to Industrial Realty Group, but Dean Foods terminated that agreement on April 13.

Dean CEO Eric Beringause said the company is proceeding with an unnamed buyer for Meadow Gold’s Hilo plant but plans to close the site in Honolulu at the end of the month.

The sales still require regulatory approvals, but Dean Foods expects to complete all of the transactions by early May.

The potential sale by Fonterra of its Australian operations could have implications for the course of Australia’s entire dairy sector over the next five to 10 years, according to ANZ’s latest Agri Commodity Report.
