BENTONVILLE, ARK. — Walmart Inc. is building a milk processing plant in Valdosta, Ga. The $350 million facility is scheduled to open in 2025, according to the company.
When completed, the plant will supply products to more than 750 Walmart and Sam’s Club locations in the Southeast.
The new milk processing plant will be the retailer’s second. The first opened in 2018 and is in Fort Wayne, Ind. In addition to the Fort Wayne site, Walmart also has a case-ready beef plant in Thomasville, Ga., and is building a second operation in Olathe, Kan.
The company said one reason for its investments in the processing plants is to build a more resilient supply chain.
