PLYMOUTH – A Sheboygan County cheese company will receive $1.5 million in performance-based state tax credits to help fund a $60 million expansion that is expected to bring 105 new jobs.
Masters Gallery Foods began work last year on the 110,000-square-foot expansion to its cheese packaging and distribution facility in Oostburg. Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers announced the tax credits Thursday during a visit to the Cheese Counter and Dairy Heritage Center in Plymouth along with Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation Secretary and CEO Missy Hughes in celebration of June Dairy Month. The tax credits are through WEDC.
“Cheese is big business in Wisconsin historically, today and, I believe, in the future as well,” Hughes said. “Cheese companies, such as Masters Gallery Foods, support our family dairy farms and help feed our world. More than that, though, Wisconsin companies and workers continue to move the dairy industry forward with innovations, research and training that make our state a leader in the food and beverage industry — drawing companies and investors from around the world.”
