It plans to move workers to Lakeville but did not say whether it would lay off any Minnesota employees.

Post Holdings Eyes Acquisitions

Post Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:POST) is looking for acquisition opportunities. "Combining our businesses in Lakeville will create a powerful branded platform for both branded cereal and further acquisitions," Rob Vitale, President and Chief Executive Officer of Post Holdings, said.

Private Label Announces Earnings Results for the Second Quarter of 2015

Private Label announced earnings results for the second quarter of 2015. For the quarter, the company reported, net sales of $124.9 million, up 8.3% over the prior year on a comparable basis. The sales increase was driven by higher volumes for conventional peanut butter and tree nut butters, as well as new Private Label granola business. This was partially offset by a decrease in volumes for the fruit and nut business, resulting from inventory corrections at a significant customer and supply shortages for certain snack mix ingredients. The company’s adjusted EBITDA was $16.9 million.
