LITTLE FALLS, N.Y. -- The production of Red Rose Tea and Salada Tea in Little Falls was supposed to come to an end Friday, as announced in October.

NewsChannel 2 reached out to company officials about it being the last day, but did not receive a call back.

Harris Tea Company purchased the tea manufacturing assets from Redco Foods and moved tea making operations to its two facilities in New Jersey and Georgia.

WKTV does not know how many employees took the offer to relocate.

All administrative, finance, and customer service functions, including online sales support will remain in Little Falls.

Redco Foods will continue the sale and distribution of the "Junket Desserts Brand" and "Teekanne Tea Brand" from its facility in Little Falls.
