Twin Falls Group To Visit New York Yogurt Plant
Representatives with the Idaho Department of Labor and College of Southern Idaho plan to visit the headquarters of New York-based Agro Farma to learn what kind of skills workers will need at a Chobani yogurt plant this week. The Times-News reports that the visits will take place Tuesday and Wednesday. Community college 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.
