Webster Planning Board set to review Fairlife facility plans

Fairlife, Inc., a subsidiary of The Coca-Cola Co., has submitted plans for its new 750,000-square-foot production facility in the Town of Webster.

The facility will sit on a 106-acre site just north of Route 104 and east of Basket Road. A portion of the approximately 1,200-foot-long building will have a maximum height of 120 feet, with the largest portion of the building no higher than 50 feet, according to sketches submitted to the Webster Town Planning Board.

Plans also including a parking area for 111 trailers, eight milk receiving bays, a collection of 120-foot silos and a 202-vehicle parking area for employees and visitors.

The planning board is scheduled to review the sketches for the $650 million project at its Tuesday meeting. Haskell Architects and Engineers, headquartered in Jacksonville, Fla., created the plans.

The eastern side of the will be enclosed by what is described as a decorative precast concrete fence as well as a landscaped berm and evergreens.

Coca-Cola is receiving $21 million through the Excelsior Jobs Tax Credit Program and is planning on another $20 million through the County of Monroe Industrial Development Agency’s application for an Empire State Development grant.

Up to 250 jobs are expected to be created by the project, which was announced in March by the manufacturer, Gov. Kathy Hochul and county and local officials.

Construction is slated to begin in the fourth quarter, with production operations getting underway in Q4 of 2025.

Fairlife’s ultrafiltration process provides a longer shelf life for high-protein milk while also removing a portion of the sugar. The property was chosen in part because of the proximity to a large number of dairy farms.
