Dairy processing facility will make Mexican-style cheeses, cremas and chorizos.

Cacique today (June 3) broke ground on an $88 million dairy processing facility in Amarillo, Texas, which will help the company meet growing demand in the U.S. for its Mexican-style cheeses, cremas and chorizos.

The 200,000-sq.-ft. facility should be operational in the fall of 2022 and expects to create 200 full-time jobs. It comes on the heels of an investment by Boston-based investment manager The Baupost Group LLC, part of a round of funding earlier this year.

Cacique operates a dairy processing plant in City of Industry, Calif., a meat processing plant in Cedar City, Utah, and a salsa plant in Gilbert, Ariz.
