Schumer says Agro Farma project contingent on federal, state incentives

NORWICH – For months, Agro Farma, the Town of Columbus-based company which produces Chobani Greek-style yogurt, has had its eye on the 335,000 square foot Woods Corners facility soon to be vacated by Procter & Gamble.

If the deal goes through, the resulting project could create as many as 350 new jobs, help local dairy farmers and bolster the tax base, according to Senator Charles Schumer.

But don’t count your chickens, the senator says. “It isn’t a done deal.”

The New York Democrat was in Norwich yesterday to learn more about the potential project and tour the 88-acre campus, which P&G put on the market more than a year ago in anticipation of their withdrawal from Chenango County.

“The building is perfect for what they want to do,” Schumer said, calling the project “one of the most exciting potential developments for Chenango County ... in a long, long time.”
