Hansel N' Gretel, a 140-year-old deli meat manufacturer, ceased operations in June and is selling the property.

A deli manufacturing business in Glendale announced that it’s closing for good after more than a century of providing deli meats.

Hansel N’ Gretel, which has been processing food on Cooper Avenue since 1970, ceased operations in June and is putting the site up for sale, according to a statement from the company.

“It was the last deli meat manufacturer in NY. When Mr. Rattner died in 2012 we knew it was only a matter of time before it closed,” Doreen Fleming wrote on Facebook when she heard that it was closing. “At least it didn’t go bankrupt. Sad because a great bunch of good people worked there.”

The owners of Hansel N’ Gretel, the Rattner family, offered no reason for closing and declined to discuss the matter.

A spokeswoman for the  family said that they would begin to auction off the manufacturing equipment in September.

The building sits on more then two acres of land and the area is an industrial zone, according to city records. Real estate agency Avison Young is brokering the sale of the site and they advertise it as  a “multi-purpose” plot.

Hansel N’ Gretel opened in 1872.  The company originally operated in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District and moved to Glendale in 1970 to accommodate the increase in work, according to a press release.
