Here are a couple stories:
But Chobani has expanded so rapidly that dairy farmers haven’t been able to grow the size of their herds as fast as the company needs, Ulukaya said.
“The demand is so high that it comes from every corner of the state,” Ulukaya said, of the milk. “Yet, we need more.”
The need for milk is a major reason why Ulukaya doesn’t know whether he will expand in this state or another, he said. The Chenango County plant will stay in place either way, but he has been in discussion with state farmers about whether they can handle further expansion by Chobani, he said.
According to sources, DFA/DMS has a full supply agreement with Chobani. Obviously, they cannot supply the Chobani plant.
However, DFA's ploy really has nothing to do with supply, but rather, with trying to disrupt class certification in the class action lawsuit. Without class certification there is no suit.
