Upstate Niagara Cooperative, Inc. is seeking funding in the amount of $800,000 for the acquisition of the North Lawrence Dairy facility in North Lawrence, NY.
Upstate Niagara is a food and beverage cooperative owned by 375 family-owned dairy farms in the Western New York State area that has made high quality dairy products since 1965.
They operate milk processing and distribution centers in Buffalo and Rochester, a cultured products plant in West Seneca, distribution Centers in Syracuse and Watertown, and a membership division in Batavia, NY. They market a wide variety of innovative products including milk, dip, ice cream mix, yogurt, and flavored milk-based beverages under the Upstate Farms, Wendt’s, Bison and Intense Brands. Yogurt is the leading growth segment in the cultured foods category of the dairy industry, and Upstate is seeking the North Lawrence facility to continue their growth. This project
will ultimately strengthen their position in the marketplace and benefit New York dairy farmers.
The funding is part of an $11,000,000 project to restart operations at the facility.
