Agro Farma, Maker of Chobani Yogurts, Creating 100 Jobs in South Edmeston, New York

Agro Farma, a maker of the Greek-style yogurt brand Chobani, is expanding in South Edmeston, New York. The company will create 100 jobs at the facility it has occupied since 2005. Over the past five years, Agro Farma has invested $100 million at the site and created 200 jobs.

"Chobani has become the number one selling yogurt in the entire Northeast, showing over a 237 percent year-to-date growth. We're taking the necessary steps to meet the growing demand for our products," said Hamdi Ulukaya, Agro Farma president and founder. "This expansion also aligns with our commitment to helping our local community thrive. Continued growth means more jobs for more people."

The facility will have an estimated annual economic impact of $500 million the first year after the expansion is completed, and $300 million annually in the following years to the New York State farming community.

"We're proud to call Chenango County home," said Keven Bucklin, Agro Farma's vice president of operations. "It's why we choose to use milk from local farms and why we'll continue to invest in Central New York."
