D.C. big cheese tours Los Banos dairy plant

April 15, 2014 

Congressman Jim Costa, left, dropped in on Los Banos Foods Inc., a California Dairies Inc. processing plant, on Monday for a tour, led by plant manager Dana Horne and Erik Snoke, rear, the company’s vice president of operations. A third-generation dairyman from the Fresno area, Costa was impressed by the plant’s water reclamation system, which saves water from the cheese-making process and repurposes it for a limited set of uses, such as cleaning. Costa represents the 16th Congressional District.
