As part of the recent cheese plant expansion project, Davisco Foods International, Inc. begins the anticipated “Phase II” plan with a capitol investment of $10 million.

The Lake Norden factory, which currently processes 3 million pounds of milk per day, will boost milk throughput at the factory by 1.5 million pounds of milk per day with the addition of a milk ultra-filtration membrane plant. Peripheral equipment that has been installed to support this effort along with the UF equipment included a separator and two pasteurizers.

“As the progressive dairy farmer of the Eastern South Dakota, Western Minnesota “I29” corridor continues to expand by adding additional cows, we are compelled to invest in our factory in Lake Norden in order to keep pace with that growth,” said Jon Davis, general manager of Davisco Foods International. Inc. “As we had hoped, the investment on the farm, in this part of the Midwest continues at a rapid pace, a pace that Davisco will continue to match.”

Concurrent to the UF equipment, the factory has finished construction on additional Lactose dryer. The dryer will further support the downstream flow from the inherent volumes regarding the whey process.
