Governor Andrew Cuomo joined PepsiCo chairman and CEO Indra Nooyi and Theo Müller Group CEO Heiner Kamps in the US to mark the construction of a new yogurt manufacturing facility by Müller Quaker Dairy.
The facility will be one of the country's largest yogurt manufacturing plants and is expected to create more than 180 new jobs in upstate New York (US).
Muller Quaker Dairy, a joint venture between PepsiCo and the Theo Müller Group, is building the facility on an 82-acre parcel of land in Batavia, which is situated in one of the nation's most concentrated milk-producing and processing regions.
The first phase of construction is scheduled to be completed in 2013.
