Lake Norden, SD -- As part of the recent cheese plant expansion project, Davisco Foods International, Inc. begins the anticipated "Phase II" plan with a capitol investment of $10 million.
The Lake Norden factory, that currently processes 3 million pounds of milk per day, will boost milk throughput at the factory by 1.5 million pounds of milk per day with the addition of a milk ultra-filtration membrane plant. Peripheral equipment that has been installed to support this effort along with the UF equipment included a separator and two pasteurizers.
"As the progressive dairy farmer of the Eastern South Dakota, Western Minnesota 'I29' corridor continues to expand by adding additional cows, we are compelled to invest in our factory in Lake Norden in order to keep pace with that growth," said Jon Davis, General Manager of Davisco Foods International. Inc. "As we had hoped, the investment on the farm, in this part of the Midwest continues at a rapid pace, a pace that Davisco will continue to match."
Concurrent to the UF equipment, the factory has finished construction on additional Lactose dryer. The dryer will further support the downstream flow from the inherent volumes regarding the whey process.
Davisco Foods International is a privately held, family-owned, dairy business headquartered in Le Sueur, MN. Operating five dairy processing plants (cheese, whey and other dairy-based food ingredients) in South Dakota, Minnesota and Idaho, Davisco produces more than 1,000,000 pounds of cheese daily.
