The Western Sugar Cooperative has pulled out of the Lovell Inc. greenhouse and food hub project, leaving the project in flux.
Lovell Inc. said they are still moving forward with the project.
“Unfortunately, just on Friday we received an email that they did not wish to participate in the greenhouse project,” Lovell Inc. Director Elaine Harvey announced during a Monday evening meeting regarding the project.
The email was just one sentence long, according to Harvey.
“We don’t want to send any kind of message that is negative toward Western Sugar,” Harvey said. “Whatever their reasons are, they still know their business better than we do.”
