Cedar’s Foods, a US producer and co-manufacturer of hummus, has announced it is completing a new 125,000 sq ft facility to produce Mediterranean foods at its base in Ward Hill, MA.
The company said the new $100 million facility would enable it double its total annual production output to 208 million pounds.
Commenting on the investment, Cedar’s Foods CFO Chris Gaudette said: “Cedar’s is dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality, authentically crafted hummus and Mediterranean foods, using the best ingredients inspired from authentic recipes passed down by our founders. This investment represents our long-term commitment to expanding our brand and growing the category, while retaining our values as a local, family-owned company”.
The new facility will create an additional 125 jobs, adding to the 750 current employees who work across three facilities at the company’s Ward Hill site.
