GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Schreiber Foods plants and distribution centers got off to a late start Wednesday morning. The company says a “cyber event” affected the systems the company’s factories and warehouses need in order to run.

Director of Communications Andrew Tobisch said all Schreiber locations were affected.

“We have a specialized response team that immediately jumped into action and began working to resolve the matter,” Tobisch said. “We’ve made great progress in resolving the issue, and our plants and distribution centers have begun to start up again.”

Schreiber Foods initially told Action 2 News it suffered a “systems issue.” Tobisch refuted an online report that Schreiber Foods was the victim of a ransomware attack, saying the company wasn’t contacted by the reporter.

Schreiber Foods is a major distributor of cheeses, yogurt and beverages. It has more than 8,000 employees on five continents, according to its website.
