State Senator Michael H. Ranzenhofer has issued the following statement:
"The dairy industry is a major driver of our local economy, and now Genesee County will be home to one of the largest branded dairy operators creating hundreds of new jobs. I commend HP Hood for transforming an idle facility into a $200 million investment."
