Overall Aerial Perspective

On August 4, the renowned cheese manufacturer Roth Cheese® will formally break ground on its new headquarters and cheese converting plant on Williams Drive. According to company representatives, the initiative will increase distribution capacity, add conversion capabilities, and create 100 new local jobs.

Tim Omer, president and managing director of Emmi Roth, declared that this was a momentous chapter in the company's history. We're thrilled to be breaking ground in Stoughton, a thriving farming community that fits with our firm commitment to Wisconsin's dairy industry, thanks to the dedicated work of our team.

Along with the company's current locations in Monroe, Platteville, and Seymour, Wisconsin, Emmi Roth will now have a new headquarters in Stoughton.

Overall SW Perspective

The company's acquisition of Athenos, a well-known feta brand made in the United States, in 2021, bolstered Emmi Roth's long-standing commitment to the specialty cheese sector, according to Jordan Ehlen, director of manufacturing. Cheeses are converted when they are taken out of their original, bigger form and crumbled, shredded, or portioned into their final form. Conversion enables us to offer clients and consumers many packaging alternatives based on their demands, which could be a cup, bag, chunk, wedge, or another form.

According to Ehlen, the facility enables Emmi Roth to be adaptable so that it can quickly respond to developments and bring new cheese innovations to market more quickly.

When construction is finished by the end of 2023, the 134,000-square-foot building will also serve as Emmi Roth's new headquarters in the United States.
