French dairy Lactalis Group has announced plans to close a facility in Alcalá de Guadaíra, Sevilla.

Production will transfer to a nearby factory in Granada, Lactalis said. This site will continue to receive milk supplied to the group by local farmers.

The company insisted that it remains "committed" to the "strategic" Andalusian region.

Lactalis said that it is commencing employee negotiations and added that it aims to offer alternate positions within the group.
