Seattle-based Darigold will start on an expansion of its Boise Bench bottling facility in the coming weeks.

The company won city approval for the 36,220 square foot bottling line expansion early last year.

The city just issued a $16.1 million building permit for the project on Alumbaugh St. and Fairmont St.

The new high-speed bottling line “will process and package half-gallon and gallon containers of fluid milk products,” according to an application letter from Stuart R. White with Epstein Global.

The dairy provider will remodel 15,800 square feet of its existing building and will demolish and rebuild a portion of the building. The plan also calls for new shipping docks and a palletizing area.

The dairy location dates to 1930 – originally founded as the Allumbaugh Dairy.

Dairigold isn’t related to another dairy with a Boise processing plant – Meadow Gold. The parent company of Meadow Gold, Dean Foods of Dallas, recently declared bankruptcy.
