I've likely been to most if not all there dairy plants and rather than investing in modern and efficient new production, DF has mostly severely aging facilities that were inefficient when they bought them or made due over the decades. Just to illustrate, San Antonio has grown to a city if 1.2 million yet the Dean's Dairy in this city dates from the 1930s. It is completely surrounded by a neighborhood and can process no more than 20-22 tankers of milk per day. There are major injuries annually at this facility and yet at no time did DF think to build a new facility? The failure of DF is self inflicted.
They announced they have restructured this and have found new funding source.
