Valdosta - Hundreds of South Georgia jobs are saved thanks to an Ohio baking company.

Last year, Winn Dixie announced it would be closing its Crackin Good Baking Plant in Valdosta. The business employs more than 200 people.

Now the company has been bought by Consolidated Biscuit based in Toledo Ohio. Owners say all of the employees will keep their jobs, and more may be added in the future.

"There is capacity to expand, we can move some products in and grow the business and we could develop some new products," said William Varney.

Consolidated Biscuit has 10 other baking plants in the United States and Ohio.
