DATCP Offering More Dairy Processor Grants
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/05/2018

Wisconsin dairy processors are invited to apply for Grow Wisconsin Dairy Processor Grants. The program is intended to foster innovation, improve profitability and sustain the long-term viability of Wisconsin's dairy processing facilities.

"The demand for quality Wisconsin dairy products continues to grow around the world," said Kathy Schmitt, director of DATCP's Agriculture and Food Center. "To meet the demand, dairy processors need to be innovative, efficient and adaptable. They need to be able to meet a number of regulatory requirements. These grants are designed to help them do so."

Grants are customizable for each processor and can be used to hire consultants to address a wide range of business needs including food safety, staff training or modernization. Eligible applicants must operate a licensed dairy processing plant engaged in pasteurizing, processing or manufacturing milk or dairy products that is, or will be, located in Wisconsin.

The application deadline is April 13. Recipients will be chosen through a competitive selection process. For more information, call 608-224-5134.
