Danone North America to expand plant-based food manufacturing site
Danone North America is increasing it's plant-based food manufacturing capacity at it's site in Pennsylvania.
The plant in DuBois will manufacture Silk, So Delicious and Vega according to Food Business News.
Mariano Lozano, chief executive officer of Danone North America said:
"As flexitarian eating patterns continue to evolve and grow in popularity, plant-based food options present an opportunity to bring new choices throughout the grocery store.
"Dairy-free is different than non-dairy — dairy-free options must be produced in a facility that is solely dedicated to plant-based food production.
"As consumers continue to seek out more dairy-free options, having a facility that meets this standard gives us an opportunity to deliver on their growing demand and high expectations."
Danone North America is owned by Danone S.A. who are aiming to make €5 billion in plant-based product sales.
