Great Customer Service.
Meister Cheese says it will expand its specialty cheese plant and double its processing capacity to meet increasing product demand from new and current customers.
Construction is expected to be completed before the end of the year. Meister Cheese employs 59 people full time and produces cheese seven days a week.
The 14,000-square-foot expansion will allow for increased production for a growing list of new customers, many of whom are interested in new cheeses made from Meister’s “A Triple F,” or “Animal Friendly Family Farms” program. The program is a partnership with Scenic Central Milk Producers and recognizes premium, high-quality milk produced using ethical and sustainable methods by Wisconsin dairy farms. Dairy farmers participating agree to a set of principles and are audited by Meister Cheese.
“We are excited to be a part of a growing company and community, and are especially excited this expansion will lead to more demand for milk produced on local dairy farms,” said chief executive officer Scott Meister. The company chose to stay local with the project, selecting Midwest Builders, Fennimore, as the general contractor, and Community First Bank for financing. The majority of subcontractors are within southwest Wisconsin, to keep dollars in the local economy.
