Glanbia Announces $82M Expansion

Cheesemaker Glanbia Foods announced this week their plans to expand their current cheese making operations with a new addition to help meet the demand for whey. Glanbia was issued a building permit in September for the 7,415-square-foot building slated to be constructed by Big-D Construction Corp, according to the permit. Glanbia plans to add up to 50 jobs with the expansion. Plans for the expansion were announced after the economic advisory council of the Idaho Department of Commerce approved their incentive plans in accordance with the Tax Reimbursement Incentive, passed earlier this year.
