TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — The Greek yogurt company Chobani is planning to expand its Idaho factory, already the largest yogurt manufacturing plant in the world.
The Times-News reports (http://bit.ly/1PdNRNE) that the New York-based company will begin producing yogurt-based dip and drinkable yogurt products at the Twins Falls factory this summer. Chobani says it will incrementally invest nearly $100 million into the plant.
The company said Wednesday the expansion includes new equipment for its new product offerings.
Chobani plans to start a new bulk production line for food-service opportunities in schools, hotels, airlines and restaurants. In the second quarter of this year, the company plans to launch products from the facility for international markets, including Mexico.
