In line with, this agreement also offers license to MGD Acquisition to operate Meadow Gold Hawaii as an ongoing business and continually serve the people across Hawaiian states.

Further, the company is highly focused on completing the transaction as early as possible to run the business at the desired pace.  

Although the agreement is subject to final approval by the bankruptcy court, it has been reported that the court had in early April given a federal nod to Dean Foods’ sales of all of its assets at a remuneration of USD 25.5 million. However, the company significantly terminated it on April 13th stating that it was proceeding with an anonymous buyer for its Hilo plant.
