Minn-Dak Farmers expanding Wahpeton sugar plant

WAHPETON, N.D. — Minn-Dak Farmers Cooperative is planning a $70 million expansion to its sugar beet processing plant in Wahpeton.

The molasses de-sugarization plant that will be built over the next two years will turn byproduct beet molasses into products used in food, pharmaceuticals and feed supplements. The Wahpeton Daily News reports it will create 20 full-time jobs.

The Richland County Commission has approved a tax break on the expansion. Property taxes will be waived the first five years and cut in half the next five years.
