The facility sits on 82-acres of land in what has become one of the most concentrated milk producing and processing regions in the country. Muller Quaker Dairy will source milk for the yogurt products locally. Products manufactured at the plant will include Muller® Corner®, Muller® Greek Corner® and Muller® FrutUp™ varieties.
Formed in 2011, the Muller Quaker Dairy joint venture brings together the complementary strengths of two successful global companies.
- PepsiCo brings scale as the largest food and beverage business in the U.S. and has leading innovation-driven research and development programs, a robust go-to-market system, and superior marketing and brand recognition across its portfolio of 22 billion-dollar brands.
- The Quaker Oats Company, a unit of PepsiCo, brings one of the most trusted brands in the world and is known for wholesome breakfast and snack foods that provide nutritional benefits throughout the day.
- Theo Muller Group has decades of category-leading innovation and dairy expertise, having grown to become Germany's largest privately held-dairy business, and one of Europe's most well-known yogurt producers.
During today's ceremony, U.S. Senator Schumer, Indra Nooyi and Theo Muller opened a giant ceremonial Muller Corner Crunchy Granola, led a collective Muller FrutUp yogurt toast and officially unveiled the Muller Quaker Dairy building sign to mark the grand opening of the new facility. They were joined by state and local government and community dignitaries, Batavia community representatives, members of local and national dairy organizations and employees.
