A new yogurt plant is being built in Suzhou, near Shanghai, by the Yili Group, China’s largest and fastest growing dairy manufacturer. Upon completion, the facility will produce cheese and pasteurized milk in addition to a range of yogurts. The Beijing, China-based dairy processor has a turnover rate of more than $1.25 billion and a growth rate of more than 40 percent per annum.
