Elmhurst Dairy Closing This Fall


Elmhurst Dairy, the popular dairy company from New York City, will be closing after 80 long years. This is the last dairy plant within New York City’s limits, located in Jamaica, Queens.

The date set for the company’s closure is October 30, 2016, due to the large amount of people wanting it to close. However, according to the company’s CEO, Henry Schwartz: “The operation was no longer profitable.”

Mr. Schwartz also stated that the dairy company has been open “long past the years that it was economically viable,” making this closure an extremely emotional one for him and his family as well.

“The family did so at a very high cost,” said Mr. Schwartz, “but is unable to continue to do so without ongoing losses.”

This is the first time in history that New York City will no longer have any dairy plants within the city’s limits.

However, despite Elmhurst Dairy’s closure, there are many other dairy alternatives that have become quite popular. Even though dairy products will still be shipped over to New York City, there are many plant-based options that people can enjoy, such as dairy-free milk from Silk and vegan ice cream from Ben & Jerry’s.
