Leading US cereal and snacks firm Kellogg has announced plans to invest US$43 million in its MorningStar Farms manufacturing facility in Ohio, USA
Founded in 1974, MorningStar Farms is a producer of “better-for-you and better-for-the-planet” plant-based foods such as burgers, nuggets, and hot dogs. Last year, the company launched an imitation meat line called Incogmeato.
According to sources, the company will invest $25 million to upgrade equipment, with the remaining $18 million earmarked to increase production capacity. This investment will reportedly create 40 new jobs.
Kellogg spokesperson Kris Bahner said: “Expanding the facility will help us continue to meet consumer demand for their favourite plant-based products. We look forward to continuing the tax incentive process to bring this expansion to Zanesville”.
