ProbioFerm, LLC, is a manufacturer of probiotics and has been in Urbandale since January of 2009. ProbioFerm grows and markets high-quality beneficial bacteria and utilizes these cultures in nutritional supplements, custom blends and more. While a number of companies nationwide focus on probiotics, few specialize in both probiotic bacteria fermentation and high-quality, finished product manufacturing. Their Urbandale location includes a fermentation plant, microbiological laboratory, a finished-goods manufacturing area, cold storage and climate-controlled warehousing. As ProbioFerm expands its international business, the company plans to build a new 20,000-square foot facility in 2015. “Urbandale is a business-friendly city that has helped us since day one and continues to support our growth. We look forward to developing new technologies that improve human and animal health and bring more jobs to Urbandale.” – Scott Goldsmith, President
In 2016, ProbioFerm built a 20,000 square foot manufacturing facility.
