JBS owned Planterra Foods has announced the opening of a new 189,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Denver.
The new facility will increase Planterra’s production capacity of plant-based protein products, allowing the brand to reach new customers and retailers and it will generate 200 new jobs.
“This is a huge milestone for Planterra Foods, and a dream come true to be manufacturing our OZO products here in our hometown of Denver,” said Darcey Macken, CEO of Planterra Foods. “We knew Colorado was the perfect place to begin and grow this company, and with our incredible team of passionate, problem-solving food lovers, I’m confident that Planterra will continue to grow the world of plant-based with the best-tasting foods in the market. We can’t wait to share what’s in store with new products, innovations and growth for our community in the future.”
The opening comes months after Planterra opened an R&D center in Colorado.
