Organic Valley plans $6.1 million expansion of Wis. headquarters

LA FARGE, Wis. (AP) — Organic Valley, the nation’s largest cooperative of organic farmers, is planning a $6.1 million expansion of its La Farge headquarters.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Thursday that the co-op says it will also add 100 jobs over the next three years.

According to a news release from the company, the co-op expects to break ground in November and complete its expansion in June 2011.

Organic Valley currently employs 525 people, mostly at the La Farge headquarters.

Expansion plans call for adding a 33,000-square-foot building to Organic Valley’s existing 50,000-square-foot headquarters, which is six years old.

Organic Valley predicts 19 percent sales growth in 2010, with revenue reaching $622 million compared with $523 million in 2009.
