WILMINGTON, DEL. (CN) – Mother’s Cake & Cookie Co. has filed for bankruptcy, listing more than $500 million in debts. The Michigan-based maker of Archway and Mother’s cookies says it will close its U.S. operations due to rising costs of food and fuel.
Mother’s is based in Battle Creek and has a production plant in Ashland, Ohio. Both operations will be shuttered, the company told the Battle Creek Enquirer.
