Chobani Twin Falls reaches full capacity milestone in less than a year
The company says sales are up 32 percent year-to-date and are expected to grow further.
Chobani, Inc.'s facility at Twin Falls, winner of Food Engineering's 2013 Plant of the Year Award, has reached optimal production capacity in under a year, allowing the company to rebalance and optimize production between facilities in Upstate New York and Twin Falls. The Twin Falls facility was completed in December 2012, after being built from the ground up in 1.7 million work hours through a $450 million investment. The facility supports around 1,200 local jobs.
"Our Twin Falls facility is ready to take on the increased production capacity and innovation it was designed for in order to help us meet the remarkable growth we're experiencing," says Hamdi Ulukaya, Founder and CEO of Chobani. "This accomplishment allows us to sustainably and efficiently meet rising national demand and is a testament to the hard work of our new leadership, as well as those who have been with us from the beginning."
