RENO, NEV. — Bella Four Bakery Inc., which last year acquired the assets of Hazelwood, Mo.-based Theodoro Bakery Co., plans to halt bread and donut production at the Hazelwood plant by April as it shifts its focus to healthier foods, according to theSt. Louis Business Journal.

“It’s a short-term blip,” Dave Marson, owner of Bella Four Bakery, told the St. Louis Business Journal. “It’s a tough business to bake bread.”

As part of the $4 million acquisition last April, Bella Four Bakery acquired Theodoro Bakery’s 117,000-square-foot baking facility in Hazelwood to make products under its Nature’s Bakery brand.

Nature’s Bakery is a Bella Four Bakery brand that supports health-conscious, active lifestyles. Nature’s Bakery offers snacks with its flagship line of fig bars that come in 10 assorted flavors and are made with natural ingredients. Its fig bars contain no high-fructose corn syrup, dairy, cholesterol, artificial flavors or colors, and they are Non-GMO Project verified, kosher and vegan.
