General Mills is investing $48 million to expand its frozen dough facility in Joplin, Missouri, US.
Expected to create 47 new jobs, the expansion will increase General Mills’ manufacturing and packaging capacity to meet growing demand and foster product innovation for the company’s foodservice customers.
The expansion will see the incorporation of new technology, including semi-automated processing and packaging, aimed at enhancing production and operational efficiencies. Upon completion, the Joplin facility will have the capability to manufacture more than 1 billion pounds of frozen dough products annually.
Tim Johnson, plant manager at the General Mills’ Joplin site, said: “At General Mills, we’re accelerating our business and investing to support continued growth in frozen dough. Southwest Missouri and the Joplin community continue to partner with employers on mutually beneficial programs to drive growth in the region.”
Construction is expected to be completed in early 2024.
