Nissin Foods, an instant noodle manufacturer, has announced an investment of $228 million to develop a third U.S. manufacturing facility in Greenville County, South Carolina.
The 640,000 sq ft facility will produce a range of products from the Nissin Foods lineup, including Top Ramen, Cup Noodles, and Hot & Spicy Fire Wok, with the ability for future expansion as required.
Commenting on the move, Nissin Foods USA CEO and president Michael Price said: “For more than 65 years, our instant ramen products and brands have cultivated a loyal consumer base, which has fueled our relentless growth in the market. With the southeastern portion of the US being a priority market for Nissin Foods, Greenville’s geographic accessibility, talented labour market, and competitive cost of living make it an ideal location for our new plant”.
“Opening a third facility marks a critical turning point for Nissin Foods, solidifying our leadership position in the US market as we continue to grow the instant ramen category”, he added.
Construction is expected to begin in December 2023 and the plant is projected to be operational by August 2025.
