Walmart Announces New Milk Processing Facility in Texas

Walmart recently announced an investment in a new milk processing facility in Robinson, Texas, that will open in 2026. The facility will support nearly 400 jobs in the community and allow Walmart to meet the growing demand from customers.

Walmart’s Bruce Heckman says, “This new facility continues our commitment to building a more resilient and transparent supply chain and ensuring our customers’ needs are met for this everyday staple.”

Walmart has been working across its food offerings to deliver increased transparency about where products come from and ensure supply for grocery essentials. It opened its first milk processing facility in Fort Wayne, Indiana, in 2018, and its second facility in Valdosta, Georgia, is expected to open in 2025. Additional investments include opening its first case-ready beef facility in Thomasville, Georgia, building a second case-ready beef facility in Olathe, Kansas, and making equity investments and long-term commercial agreements with Sustainable Beef LLC and vertical farming company Plenty.
