Golfo di Napoli Dairy to build organic cheese production plant in Warren, IN
Golfo di Napoli Dairy plans to invest $9.5 million to establish the plant.
Italy-based Golfo di Napoli Dairy announced plans to locate a commercial organic cheese plant in Warren, Ind., creating up to 35 jobs by 2021.
Golfo di Napoli Dairy plans to invest $9.5 million to establish the plant, constructing an approximately 3,000-square-foot plant on a 40-acre site along Interstate-69 at Exit 278 in Warren. The plant, which will utilize USDA-certified organic milk from Fair Oaks Farms, Pleasant Prairie, Wis., will produce mozzarella, burrata, ricotta, provolone and other cheeses using the pasta filata technique, which is traditionally used in the Naples region.
“We chose Indiana because we believe that it is the perfect location to produce authentic Neapolitan mozzarella, serving customers across the Midwest,” says Antonio Somma, president of Golfo di Napoli Dairy. “This facility and our partnership with Fair Oaks Farm will allow us to expand our cheese production expertise to the U.S. Local organic milk with incredible Italian taste, as we like to say.”
The company will begin construction in September, and plans to begin production in February 2019.
