CHICAGO – Fairlife LLC, a wholly owned business of The Coca-Cola Co., has opened a new 300,000-square-foot production and distribution facility in Goodyear, Ariz. The plant features advanced manufacturing technologies and equipment, according to the company. More than 100 roles have already been filled at the Goodyear facility.
“With cases now rolling off the line in Goodyear, today is an exciting day for fairlife and the consumers who love our products,” said Neil Betteridge, senior vice president of global manufacturing for fairlife. “This new state-of-the-art facility allows us to significantly increase our production capabilities in the West Region and beyond while also bringing hundreds of jobs to Arizonians.”
Fairlife also has partnered with the United Dairymen of Arizona (UDA) to source milk from dairy farmers in the West Valley. The Goodyear plant will use this milk to manufacture almost all products in the fairlife portfolio, including fairlife ultra-filtered milk, Core Power, fairlife YUP! and fairlife Nutrition Plan protein beverages.
“With shared values of animal care and great nutrition, our partnership with the UDA has been a seamless and enjoyable part of opening this new plant in beautiful Arizona,” Mr. Betteridge said. “We look forward to ramping up production in the coming weeks to bring fairlife products to more consumers.”
