GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - More of us are eating yogurt -- a trend that's about to create more jobs in southwest Wisconsin.

Schreiber Foods of Green Bay is about to build a new distribution facility in Richland Center, where the company now has two yogurt plants that provide about 400 jobs.

UW experts say yogurt is big business. The university's center for Dairy Research says 83 percent of American households buy yogurt. Three-fourths of those people are repeat customers.

Schreiber Foods has 35 plants and distribution centers throughout the globe -- including a plant in Green Bay which makes processed cheese, and a cream cheese factory in West Bend.
