NORWICH – Agro Farma, makers of Chobani, America’s #1 selling yogurt brand, announced plans Thursday to open a second domestic manufacturing plant as part of the company’s continued strategic growth initiative. Chobani plans to invest over $100 million to build a state-of-the-art, high capacity production facility housed on 200 acres of agricultural and industrial land in Twin Falls, Idaho.
“We visited numerous possible sites over the past several months and met a lot of great people along the way.” said Hamdi Ulukaya, CEO and founder of Chobani. “It was a hard decision to make, but in the end, we chose Twin Falls due to its abundant milk supply, skilled labor force and tight knit local community. We’re looking forward to starting the next chapter of the Chobani story here in Idaho’s Magic Valley.”
Agro Farma’s new Twin Falls site will not impact plans to move forward with its previously announced expansion for the company’s landmark South Edmeston manufacturing plant, according to Agro Farma Communications Coordinator Kelly LaCorte.
