Superior Dairy Incorporated, a manufacturer of milk products, needed to support new aseptic processes and packaging lines that will enable the company to expand into new markets that complement their fluid dairy component.
Superior Dairy also sought to implement new manufacturing lines for growth in their cottage cheese, sour cream and cream product lines as well as the preliminary implementation of a new caseless line.
“Our team of dedicated employees is proud to continue the rapid growth which makes our company the largest fluid milk producer serving customers throughout the United States. Our family has called Canton and Ohio home for 100 years. This investment continues our focus on innovation and technology that will help us expand beyond the U.S. and ultimately feed the world with the highest quality products from Superior Dairy.” – Greg Soehnlen president, Superior Dairy
