This abandoned factory produced butter. Lots of butter. It was founded in the late 1950s with the goal of processing the cream from all the local dairy farms in order to achieve a consistent quality. By the early 1960, around fourty dairy farms were incorporated into this enterprise. The production reached about 4.000 tons p.a.
In the late 1960s, a dairy processing plant was built and in the following years, about fifty more dairy operations were incorporated. The production reached about 15.000 tons by the early 1970.
When the churning plant was expanded in the 1980s, the production peaked at 33.000 tons.
In 2001, the butter production was relocated to another town and the factory specialized in producing dried whey powder for animal feeding and the food industry. The factory was finally closed in 2014.
