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.
