Organic Food Coop Getting Help in Monroe County

(10/25/13) The nation's largest organic food cooperative is getting more help with an expansion project in western Wisconsin. 

Governor Scott Walker said yesterday that the state would kick in one-point-four million dollars for road work at the Organic Valley facility.  The farmer-owned co-op is spending 25-million dollars to build new headquarters and an expanded distribution center at Cashton in Monroe County.  Walker says the project will add close to 340 new jobs at Organic Valley, and will indirectly support another 360 jobs.  Organic Valley is the nation's largest handler of organic milk.  It also distributes organic meat, eggs, and juice.  The state grant will help Cashton pay for about three-point-two-million dollars in road amenities.
