Newsline: Leprino Starts Production in Lemoore
“Everybody was so giddy about the fact that we're actually making cheese,” plant controller Mike Haywood told the local media. “It was great to actually get to see the fruits of your labor.”
It will take a year for the plant to reach full production, at which point it will be converting 6 million pounds of milk into 600,000 pounds of mozzarella cheese every dayenough to top 800,000 large pizzas. By then, Leprino says, the Lemoore plant will be the largest mozzarella cheese factory in the world.
