Pineland Farms Dairy Co. will reopen a dairy processor in Maine after it was closed for five years.

According to dairyherd.com operations will begin in July for the 75,000 square foot cheese processor. The cheese plant was closed in 2013 by Dean Foods and was bought in 2017 by Pineland Farms.

Costs to renovate the plant were projected at $6 million but are now at $10 million. The plant has hired 16 employees thus far and may hire up to 50 people when it is completely operational.
