NAMPA, Idaho — After visiting the Gem State eight different times, it's official.
Jetton BioChemistry, a Taiwanese dairy and formula manufacturer, is opening a facility in Nampa.
Thank you and congratulations to @IdahoCommerce, @SenatorRisch & to Jetton BioChemistry for selecting the great state of #Idaho for the site of your new facility. Idaho is an ideal location for your production, since it is one of the top dairy-producing states in our nation. https://t.co/CBpzxAwADZ— Sec. Wilbur Ross (@SecretaryRoss) June 11, 2019
The facility will be producing a powdered drink to can and ship back to Asian markets.
The company is hiring 25 new local employees. Nearly all raw materials for their products will be from Idaho processors.
Idaho was chosen over other states largely because of the high quality dairy products that the state produces.
