Dannon’s Upgrade Of Utah Yogurt Factory Is Part Of Plan To Boost Sales In Western States

December 27, 2010: 08:29 AM EST

Dannon, the world’s largest yogurt maker, is boosting production at its plant in Utah in the hopes of gaining a bigger share of the Western U.S. market, where annual per-capita yogurt consumption currently is less  than one-sixth that of Western Europe. In a move to bolster that  strategy and triple U.S. yogurt sales to $3 billion a year, parent company Danone is also negotiating to acquire Portland, Ore.-based frozen yogurt maker YoCream. Dannon is replacing a water treatment system at the Utah plant to accommodate a 67 percent hike in production to 242 tons a year. The Utah facility, opened in 1997, originally produced bottled water but switched to yogurt in 2000. The Activia, Dannon, Light& Fit, Dan-o-nino and Danimal brands are all produced there.
