A major Japanese agriculture company, specializing in dairy products, has chosen Peachtree City, GA as their new American headquarters. Calpis America Inc. will build a manufacturing facility alongside its new American headquarters. The Peachtree City, facility will produce CALSPORIN®, the company's direct-fed microbial product used widely in the livestock industry to supply a naturally occurring microorganism.
“Calpis’ choice to invest in Georgia is a perfect example of the reason Georgia established an office in Japan 40 years ago,” said Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Chris Cummiskey. “The company joins more than 370 Japanese businesses throughout the state employing 20,000-plus Georgians. It is our partnerships both at home and abroad that make this sort of success possible.”
