Fairlife LLC announced plans to increase overall production capabilities with the construction of a new 300,000-square-foot production and distribution facility in Goodyear, Ariz., a suburb of Phoenix. Chicago-based Fairlife currently produces multiple varieties of dairy-based beverages at its production plant in Coopersville, Mich., and distributes the beverages to retailers in the United States and Canada.
“I’m extremely proud that the demand for our milk has grown so much that we now need another manufacturing site,” said Tim Doelman, chief operating officer for Fairlife. “In choosing a new plant location, it is essential that the new facility be built in an area where dairy farms are willing and able to follow Fairlife’s responsible animal care and sustainable farming practices while producing the highest-quality milk. Not only are there amazing dairy farmers in and around Goodyear, its location enables competitive domestic and international production.”
