BLUE BUFFALO PURCHASED BY GENERAL MILLS

(Richmond, IN)--There’s no word yet on how – if at all – Richmond’s new Blue Buffalo plant will be affected by a buyout by General Mills.  General Mills announced Thursday that it would buy Blue Buffalo Pet Products for roughly $8 billion in cash.  The deal values the natural pet food company at $40 per share.  Travis Moore, who is Blue Buffalo’s local plant manager, said last week that progress was being made toward a local opening.  "Mid 2018 start-up...that's what we're still on schedule for.  Things are going really well."  The deal is expected to close by the end of this year.
