The 27,568-square-foot expansion will make room for additional packaging and filling rooms on the east side of the plant, and will keep a steady flow of yogurt going when the production line changes flavors. The plant went from three lines producing about 100,000 cases a week to 12 lines producing more than 1 million cases a week. The Greek yogurt producer also won city approval to add a 10,000-square-foot area for office and employee trailers, a project that will add another $250,000 to the facility’s value.

"Ongoing expansion in our plants support continued growth and rising demand for Chobani, enabling us to provide better food for more people across the country,” Chobani said in a statement to Refrigerated & Frozen Foods. “Our Twin Falls plant is key to our continued success and has been a key economic driver for the state, supporting jobs and the overall community. Opened in December 2012, the state-of-the-art facility was built from the ground up through a $450 million investment and 1.7 million work hours.”
