In early 2020, Sweet Grass Dairy was in the midst of moving to a new larger production facility, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit and they lost nearly 78% of their business overnight. The Georgia Manufacturing Extension Partnership (GaMEP) worked with the company to shift their business from restaurants and specialty food stores to larger retailers and eCommerce customers by helping them write a food safety plan to meet new customer requirements, making improvements to their website, and reconfiguring their packaging area to accommodate new product formats.
