Project Description

Meister Cheese Company, widely known for their ability to source cheese with special characteristics including use of only BGH-free milk from pasture-raised cows, and an established “Animal Friendly Family Farm” is known for providing their customers “food with integrity”. Their sister company, Muscoda Protein Products (MPP), produces whey protein concentrate and lactose provided from Meister Cheese Co. Meister used NMTCs to upgrade the MPP facility and purchase equipment. A portion of the equipment expenditure was used by MPP to upgrade its lactose equipment and refrigeration system at the whey plant, increasing efficiency and product quality; another portion was used to purchase equipment related to cheese production to be leased back to Meister Cheese enabling them to increase their production capacity to meet customer needs.
