Alpina Foods LLC announced plans on Friday to purchase 10 acres of land adjacent to its plant in the Genesee Valley Agri-Business Park in Batavia.
The acquisition will double the company’s size, just nine months after it opened a 40,000-square-foot, $20 million facility that specializes in Greek yogurt production.
The company employs 55 at the plant, exceeding the goal of 50 the company committed to hiring by 2014, and expects to bring in additional team members in the coming months as production continues to increase.
