To mark the construction of the more than 350,000-square foot state-of-the-art facility, Cuomo and Müller joined Nooyi for the signing of a ceremonial steel beam in front of state and local government and community dignitaries, representatives of local and national dairy organizations, and members of local community organizations and groups.
In addition to building the Batavia facility, Muller Quaker Dairy will source its milk supply from U.S. dairy farmers, with the majority coming from New York State and Northeast region dairy farms. According to data from Euromonitor, demand for value-added dairy is expected to increase in the coming years. In the U.S., variety and innovation within the yogurt category lags behind other regions, especially Europe. U.S. consumption of yogurt and other value-added dairy products is generally less than half that of Europe.
