The J.M. Smucker has announced the investment of $1.1 billion in a new facility and distribution centre in Alabama to meet the consumer demand.
The new manufacturing facility is the third dedicated to the production of Smucker’s Uncrustables brand and will support The J.M. Smucker’s strategy to more than double its current production capacity.
The new facility and distribution centre will be built in three phases during the next three years creating 750 new jobs.
“Our Smucker’s® Uncrustables® brand continues to be one of the fastest growing in our portfolio and in the food sector more broadly. We are proud of the success the brand has achieved, due in no small part to the tremendous efforts of our employees, and we’re excited to take advantage of the opportunities and growth our investments will enable,” said Mark Smucker, President and Chief Executive Officer.
