Chobani Set to Expand it’s Largest Yogurt Plant
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Twin Falls officials have approved a $3.5 million expansion of a Greek yogurt plant operated by Chobani. The Times-News reports in a story on Wednesday that the addition to the $450 million plant will add to its packaging and filling rooms on the east side. Company officials say the plant reached a production milestone in December, producing more than 1 million cases of yogurt a week. The company says there’s room for additional expansion. Chobani founder Hamdi Ulukaya on Friday asked Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter to veto a bill that jails for up to a year people who secretly film animal abuse at Idaho’s agricultural facilities. Ulukaya says the law conflicts with the company’s views and values. But Otter signed the bill later that day.
