Davisco Foods International, a privately held, family-owned, dairy business headquartered in Le Sueur, Minn., has broken ground on a new US$40m mozzarella cheese plant. Based in Lake Norden, South Dakota, the plant will create 60 additional jobs at the new cheese plant, secure the 90 existing jobs, and dramatically increase the market for milk produced by area farmers by as much as 5 million pounds of milk per day. The plant will initially support the milk production from 30,000 cows, and eventually expand to require the milk production from 75,000 cows. Construction on the new project will take approximately 15-18 months to complete.
