Investment to Expand Cold Storage, Create Jobs
Conagra Brands plans to invest approximately $78 million to expand operations at its Beaver Dam facility in Wisconsin. The project, which is expected to create about 140 full-time jobs over the next five years, will increase the 350,000 ft2 cold storage and vegetable packaging facility.
The facility supports the Birds Eye frozen vegetables operation. The project will also modernize the operation. According to a report, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation is supporting the expansion by authorizing up to $750,000 in state income tax credits during the next five years.
