Nestlé has announced an investment of $70 million in its Burlington factory to begin the production of Nestlé Toll House refrigerated cookie dough.
Located in Burlington, Wisconsin, the facility initially manufactured confectionery products such as 100 Grand and Nestlé Crunch.
In 2018, Nestlé sold its US confectionery unit to Ferrero; however, the company retained its Toll House baking products and the Burlington plant for the production of its ice cream, baking and beverage lines.
Reports suggest that the facility has also continued to produce confectionery products for Ferrero.
The investment will see the installation of four new lines, which will “add new technology and infrastructure designed for refrigerated cookie dough”.
Nestlé says the upgrade will create more than 100 positions to be filled by May 2022.
