Glanbia’s new state-of-the-art cheese and whey plant in Michigan began receiving its first deliveries of milk today. The plant is a joint venture between Glanbia, Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) and Select Milk Producers – a group of 99 dairy farmer suppliers.

As part of the joint venture, Glanbia will hold a 50% stake in the new business, while DFA and Select Milk Producers will own the remaining 50%. An eight-month commissioning process will now begin at the new plant.
