RICHLAND CENTER, Wis. (AP) -- Schreiber Foods will soon begin construction of a distribution center in Richland Center to meet the growing demand for yogurt.

The dairy giant has spent over $100 million in the last five years on its two Richland Center yogurt plants, which together employ about 400 people.

The Wisconsin Center for Dairy Research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison says 83 percent of households in the U.S. are buying yogurt and three-quarters of them are repeat customers.

The State Journal says Schreiber Foods is one of the biggest privately held companies in the U.S. with an estimated $4.5 billion in revenue last year. Schreiber also has a plant in West Bend, which makes cream cheese, and a process cheese plant in Green Bay. Schreiber, headquartered in Green Bay, has 35 plants and distribution centers worldwide.
