Daily Bread for 2.6.22: Food Dye, the Eighth Wonder of the World!

  Good morning.

Sunday in Whitewater will be intermittently cloudy with a high of 37.  Sunrise is 7:02 AM and sunset 5:15 PM for 10h 13m 11s of daytime.  The moon is a waxing crescent with 30.9% of its visible disk illuminated.

 On this day in 1967, nationally-known activist Stokely Carmichael speaks at UW-Whitewater as part of a forum series entitled “Black Power and the Civil Rights Movement.

 Adam Rogan reports Building where Trump said Foxconn would be ‘8th wonder of the world’ to be leased by food coloring company:

MOUNT PLEASANT — The 156,000-square-foot Opus building, first leased by Foxconn when it came to Wisconsin, is now to be occupied by Oterra, a Danish company that brands itself as “the world’s largest provider of naturally sourced colors for food, beverages, dietary supplements and pet food.”

Trump: Foxconn will be "eighth wonder of the world"
Then-President Donald Trump declares Foxconn’s campus in Mount Pleasant would be the “eighth wonder of the world” during a speech in the Opus building, 13315 Globe Drive, June 28, 2018.  

The Opus building is located at 13315 Globe Drive, immediately southeast of where Highway 20 passes underneath Interstate 94. It is where then-President Donald Trump, on June 28, 2018, proclaimed Foxconn’s complex in Wisconsin would be the “eighth wonder of the world.” Foxconn never actually owned the Opus building; it’s owned by an LLC out of Milwaukee County.

The building will be the new North American headquarters for Oterra, which was previously known as Chr. Hansen Natural Colors A/S. Oterra derives from terra, the Latin word for earth.

The move to Mount Pleasant is a relocation from West Allis. The company expects to employ 100 people in Mount Pleasant once fully operational, and it expects to be “operational in very, very early 2024,” Sarah O’Neil, Oterra’s vice president of commercial sales and marketing, said in a phone interview Friday.

Pet food dye.

Honest to goodness.
