Ya Ya Food Corp’s $92m Investment

Ya Ya Food Corp, a Toronto-based food and beverage packaging company, has announced a $92 million investment in the expansion of its manufacturing plant in Ogden, Utah.

The company took over the plant from Swedish alternative dairy company Oatly as part of a $72m dal in January. This is part of Oatly’s shift to an “asset-light supply chain strategy” where Ya YA Foods not only assumed management of Oatly’s Ogden facility but also took control of its Fort Worth, Texas operation.

This strategic move is a key component of Ya YA’s expansion plans and marks the company’s initial venture into food and beverage packaging in the United States, projecting the creation of 302 jobs over the next decade.
