Chobani plans yummy manufacturing expansion in Twin Falls
TWIN FALLS, Idaho — Chobani plans a major expansion to its manufacturing facility in Twin Falls, Idaho, which will be used to drive continued growth in the region, the state and the community and expand production capability to meet demand for new and existing products for the Greek yogurt company.
“Building the largest yogurt manufacturing plant in the world and expanding it three years later is a really proud moment for us and an example of how right it was to pick Idaho as our second home,” said Hamdi Ulukaya, chairman and CEO, Chobani. “Our success in Idaho and New York is an example of the power and strength of U.S. manufacturing. To food companies like ours, it’s a signal of the momentum of the food movement that we started: better food for more people.”
Chobani commissioned its second domestic manufacturing facility in Twin Falls, Idaho, in 2013, making it the largest yogurt manufacturing facility in the world. The company had previously invested more than $450 million to build the one million square foot, world-class operation. The initial construction was completed in an unprecedented 326 days, with more than 2,000 men and women who put in more than 1.7 million man hours to build the state-of-the-art facility from the ground up.
