Chobani Halts Whey Shipments after Complaints

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — The owner of a southern Idaho farm where acid whey was being spread on the soil says the work will stop while the businesses try to accommodate neighbors’ concerns.

The Times-News  reports that Reed Gibby is under a contract with Chobani to spread acid whey — a yogurt byproduct from Chobani’s Twin Falls plant — on his land as a soil amendment and as feed for livestock. This spring more than 1,000 truckloads of the liquid from the plant were hauled to Gibby’s farm near Hollister, but neighbors began complaining about the traffic and smell.

The complaints reached Chobani official John Sneldon, who suspended the work until the issues could be addressed. Gibby says the trucks have been rerouted and an odor-reducing additive is being added to the whey.
