The iconic Brown's Dairy milk plant in Central City will soon end operations in New Orleans and eliminate 185 positions. 

The company which is owned by Dean Foods says the decision was made after a "careful review of the facility."

Production will be phased out over the next several months. 

A significant portion of the production will remain in  Louisiana at a Hammond facility.

Brown's products will continue to be available in New Orleans and existing markets; which include Southeastern Louisiana, Southern Mississippi, and parts of Southern Alabama.

Brown's Dairy was founded in New Orleans in 1905 as Brown's Velvet Dairy.
