Magic Valley Quality Milk Producers (MVQMP) announced plans to expand its Jerome, Idaho, headquarters plant.

“The board of directors have approved a $20 million expansion project designed by Power Engineers and Dairy Industry Consultants with Petersen Bros. Construction as our general contractor and Advanced Process Technologies, Inc. as our main milk process equipment supplier. The project will take 12 months to complete, and we expect to employ at least 15 new employees,” says Alan Stutzman, general manager.

With the investment, MVQMP will be able to market ultra-filtered skim milk, condensed skim milk and cream. The project will involve the construction of a 2-truck bay milk receiving building, expansion of existing process area with new processing equipment, built out of steam, electrical and refrigeration systems, additional office and employee facilities.
