Agropur, one of the world’s largest dairy suppliers, will build a new $168 million state-of-the-art cheese factory in Little Chute. With this project, the cooperative anticipates spending nearly $60 million more a year on milk from Wisconsin farms and creating at least 54 new full-time jobs.
Gov. Tony Evers announced today the state of Wisconsin will support the expansion of Agropur Dairy Cooperative in Little Chute with up to $4.5 million in business tax credits from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp.
“From our farmers and cheesemakers and the folks in the dairy supply chain to the workers who will help build this expansion, to the Wisconsin cheese consumers and enthusiasts everywhere, this investment will be felt far beyond the farm,” Evers said. “This project is great news for our economy and for Wisconsin.”
