Chobani Increasing Production

Benito Baeza

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Greek yogurt company Chobani says it is increasing production at its Twin Falls plant and adding production of a new “light” yogurt called Simply 100.

Chobani officials tell The Times-News the $450 million plant is running at optimal production capability for the first time since it opened a year ago. When the plant opened, it made about 100,000 cases of yogurt per week running three or four production lines.

It is now running 12 production lines and producing up to a million cases of yogurt a week. The plant’s first year was not without difficulties. In September, Chobani recalled 35 varieties of yogurt that may have been contaminated with mold. Some containers bloated and some consumers said the yogurt made them sick.
