Area dairy company not worried about Walmart plans

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): A dairy company with a processing plant in Huntington isn’t too worried about a recent announcement that Walmart will be opening a facility of their own in Fort Wayne.

Walmart plans on building a 250,000 square foot processing plant near Fort Wayne International Airport, and the Journal Gazette reports that around 100 million gallons of milk that’s currently processed at Dean Foods’ Huntington operation will end up being sent to Walmart’s facility instead.

Dean Foods said in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission that the company doesn’t expect Walmart’s operation to have a “material impact” on their bottom line.

Officials in Huntington, a town that recently saw United Technologies announce plans to move 700 jobs to Mexico, apparently aren’t worried either, according to the paper.
