Keurig Green Mountain, the North American coffee giant, has announced the construction of a new facility for its K-Cup coffee capsules.
The new plant, located in Moore, SC, USA, is projected to see an investment of $350 million and lead to the creation of 500 jobs. Keurig Green Mountain said that the facility would primarily house coffee roasting and packaging for the firm’s single-serve K-Cup pods, but would also have potential to support beverage distribution and warehousing in the future.
Commenting on the new facility, Keurig Green Mountain chief supply chain officer Richard Jones said: “The Keurig Green Mountain business continues to grow. As we plan for the future, we’re pleased to locate our newest facility in Spartanburg County to support our growth. We view the region’s talented employee base and attractive business environment as the right place to invest”.
