Fairlife LLC announced the opening of a new production and distribution facility in Goodyear, Ariz. The new 300,000-square-foot facility boasts advanced manufacturing technologies and equipment to enable continued growth more efficiently, while supporting the increased demand for Fairlife products.
“With cases now rolling off the line in Goodyear, today is an exciting day for Fairlife and the consumers who love our products,” said Neil Betteridge, senior vice president of global manufacturing for the Chicago-based company. “This new state-of-the-art facility allows us to significantly increase our production capabilities in the West region and beyond while also bringing hundreds of jobs to Arizonians.”
Fairlife said it already filled more than 100 roles at the Goodyear facility and partnered with the United Dairymen of Arizona (UDA) to source milk from numerous dairy farmers in the West Valley. The new plant will use this milk to manufacture almost all products in the Fairlife portfolio, including the different varieties of Fairlife ultra-filtered milk, Core Power, Fairlife YUP! and its newest protein-rich beverage, Fairlife Nutrition Plan.
“With shared values of animal care and great nutrition, our partnership with the UDA has been a seamless and enjoyable part of opening this new plant in beautiful Arizona,” said Betteridge. “We look forward to ramping up production in the coming weeks to bring Fairlife products to more consumers.”
