Walmart is expanding its dairy processing capacity with a new facility in Texas

The facility will be Walmart’s third dairy processing plant, following facilities in Fort Wayne, Indiana, which opened in 2018, and Valdosta, Georgia, which is expected to open next year.

Walmart said the new facility will serve more than 750 Walmart and Sam’s Club stores in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and parts of Arkansas and Mississippi. The facility will process a range of liquid milk products under Walmart’s brand names.

“The new facility will enable Walmart to meet growing customer demand for high-quality milk, while providing transparency into where products come from and making the supply chain more resilient,” the company said.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also praised the investment in the state.

“World-renowned companies like Walmart continue to choose Texas for our unparalleled business climate, lower operating costs and highly skilled, diverse and growing workforce,” said Abbott. “This major investment is a testament to the promise of economic success in Texas, and I thank Walmart for choosing McLennan County as the location for its important new facility.”

In addition to dairy processing, Walmart also opened its first beef plant in Thomasville, Georgia, and the company announced the construction of a second beef plant in Olathe, Kansas, last summer.
