A $20 million cranberry processing facility has opened near Warrens.

Local and state officials, including Gov. Scott Walker, were on hand for Cranberry Growers Cooperative’s ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday, where they celebrated its impact to independent growers and Wisconsin’s economy.

“What a pleasure it is to be here today,” said Walker, who shared stories of his own love of cranberry juice. “Cranberries are a key part of our state’s economy.

“Today, this is really what it’s about – it’s about the future.”

The plant, also referred to as CranGrow, is the result of a vision of independent growers and is used to process member fruit into a variety of cranberry products, including dried cranberries, juice concentrate, whole frozen berries and cranberry seed pomace at its Aspen Avenue site in the town of Lincoln.
