Sorrento Lactalis Expansion

Today, the Lactalis American Group announced a $40 million production expansion at its Nampa Sorrento Lactalis facility. The expansion will result in about 70 new jobs (good news for Nampa's citizens and economy) and increase production of mozzarella from 7 million pounds to 31 million pounds per year (good news for cheese-lovers).

Sorrento currently partners with 58 local dairy farmers and purchases 85% of its dairy products from local and regional dairies. Construction is set to begin next month and production is expected to start in early 2013. Lactalis estimates the expansion will result in $250 million in annual revenue for local dairies.
