Freshpet to expand refrigerated petfood production

New US$2.9 million plant in Pennsylvania, USA, to create 100 jobs when it opens in 2013

Petfood manufacturer Freshpet purchased a US$2.9 million plant in Hanover Township, Pennsylvania, USA, to expand production of its fresh, refrigerated petfood.

The 60,000-square-foot petfood facility is expected to add 100 jobs at Freshpet when it opens in 2013.

Freshpet CEO Richard Thompson said the company plans to invest another US$25 million into the facility, providing 80,000 square feet for plant operations when internal renovations are completed. The project's first phase is expected to open in March 2013, and the project will be completed in July 2013. Thompson hopes the petfood manufacturing facility will bring an additional US$250 million in revenue to the company.
