(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Oklahoma City coffee producer and distributor Cain's Coffee plans to shut down production at its plant in June ending an 84-year legacy in the city.

The closure will mean the loss of 90 jobs.

Company officials say the company will keep about 30 employees in Oklahoma City to work on distribution and route services.

Cain's is now owned by Chicago-based company Sara Lee. Sara Lee has been restructuring since 2000.

Sara Lee officials say it will move its coffee and tea production from Oklahoma City to a larger Sara Lee plant in Houston.

Cain Coffee Company was founded by William Morgan Cain Senior and has been in Oklahoma City since 1919.
