"It's our first entry into food production," Walmart spokeswoman Molly Blakeman told TheStreet on Wednesday, June 13, following the grand opening the same day of the company's dairy processing plant in Fort Wayne, Ind. When fully operational, the plant will be the largest for "fluid milk" or drinking milk, in the country. The plant will serve some 500 Walmart stores in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Northern Kentucky.
