Agropur have agreed to pay a $30,000 fine for a breach of their permitted wastewater discharge limits at the cheese manufacturing plant in Jerome, Southern Idaho. The incident dates back to December 2021 when some 9,000 gallons of “discoloured effluent” were released into the local sewage system. The Jerome plant is now 32 years old and was opened by Davisco Foods in 1991. The Canadian co-op acquired Davisco in July 2014. Agropur have started the construction of a new $22m waste treatment plant.
