Sabra, the joint venture between PepsiCo and Strauss that markets hummus and other dips and spreads in North America, has broken ground on the latest expansion to its production facility located in Chesterfield County, VA.
The firm said that the 40,000 sq ft expansion at the site – described as the world’s largest factory dedicated to the manufacture of hummus – would enable it to expedite product delivery to retail as well as enhancing warehousing capabilities.
“The new addition more than doubles Sabra’s finished goods storage capacity, lays the groundwork for future packaging customization capabilities and will result in an improved carbon footprint”, the firm said in a statement.
Commenting on the move, Sabra CEO Tomer Harpaz added: “America’s favorite hummus is made in America, right here in Chesterfield County, Virginia. Today, we break ground on what will be the fourth expansion on this campus, reflecting both Sabra’s growth to date and the anticipated continued brand and category evolution we envision for the near future”.
