Magic Valley Officialsl Visit Chobani Factory
(AP) Representatives with the Idaho Department of Labor and College of Southern Idaho plan to visit the headquarters of New York-based Agro Farma this week. They want to learn what kind of skills workers will need at a Chobani yogurt plant that will create 400 jobs when it opens sometime next year in Twin Falls. CSI officials say the school can contribute to the employee training, while state labor officials say the agency can help with worker recruitment. College Instructional Dean Todd Schwarz says the new plant will have technologically advanced equipment and machinery. Agro Farma officials announced last month that Twin Falls had been picked as the home for a new $100 million western manufacturing plant for its Chobani yogurt.
