Austrian firm in financial difficulty following a deadly Listeria outbreak

Food Safety News

A company in Austria that was linked to a deadly Listeria outbreak earlier this year is in financial trouble.

AKV, an association to protect creditor rights recognized by Austrian authorities, deals with insolvency cases in courts.

It reported that Käserei Gloggnitz can no longer meet its payment obligations. Insolvency proceedings have been opened by the regional court in Wiener Neustadt. A hearing is planned for early February 2023.

The reasons for the insolvency position are unknown, according to AKV. So the impact of the Listeria monocytogenes incident on the company is unclear.

As part of the proceedings, it will have to be checked whether the dairy producer will be continued and restructured or if existing assets will be inventoried and valued.
