USA: General Mills to invest $250 million in Tennessee plant
General Mills Inc has announced it will invest $250 million to increase capacity at its plant in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
The new investment, which aims to increase the capacity of the Murfreesboro plant and will include the addition of two production lines, is part of “Project Century”, the company’s company-wide restructuring plan.
The plant, which currently produces Yoplait yogurt and all of the company’s Toaster Strudel products, is expected to take over some of the Pillsbury refrigerated baked goods production as a result of the closure of the company’s plant in New Albany, IN, in mid-2016.
“On behalf of our Murfreesboro employees, and General Mills, we’re excited for what’s to come and look forward to continued success in Murfreesboro”, said Dave Tincher, plant manager.
