Elmhurst Dairy Inc. plans to terminate 702 jobs in New York City and Jamaica, N.Y., due to Starbucks' decision to switch dairy providers.  Starbucks has recently terminated their contract with Elmhurst Dairy and switched to non-unionized, non-local workers through Dean Foods, which is the nation’s largest dairy processor based in Texas.

Elmhurst Dairy, Inc., a dairy producer, pasteurizes, homogenizes, packs, and delivers bottle milk through local groceries in New York City.  Elmhurst Dairy, Inc. was founded in 1919 and is based in Jamaica, New York.

The Plant Prospector is a weekly e-mail service that identifies national, regional, and local plants and businesses in transition through layoffs, closings, and work force reductions. A reduction in the number of employees is an indication of a current or imminent change in the operations of an enterprise and is invaluable in identifying companies including private firms, small public companies, and subsidiaries of major corporations that are in flux. Plant Prospector is an ideal prospecting tool for firms that provide services to businesses in transition, such as temporary employment agencies and outplacement firms, and for companies whose business may be affected by change, such as suppliers, professional firms, and insurance companies.
