Colleen and all White Lily users....I live about 20 miles from the White Lily mill in Knoxville, Tennessee and they have just announced this week that they are closing the company and laying off all employees after about 125 years in the same place. Sad for all of us and users too. You'd better stock up on any White Lily products now before it's too late. Regards, Eddie

    I'm pretty sure that the Knoxville plant is closing down, but White Lily flour will still be produced. Smucker's just bought the brand in 2006 for $80ish million. I find it hard to believe they'd buy the brand only to shut it down. White Lily products will probably just be produced in another plant owned by Smucker's for cost cutting and profitability purposes.

      That's basically correct. The products will still be made, but elsewhere.
