Soy and dairy creamer manufacturer WhiteWave Foods Company is investing $69.8 million to expand its factory operations in Mount Crawford, Va. WhiteWave produces products for brands such as Silk®, Horizon Organic®, International Delight® and LAND O LAKES®.
The announcement came after a bidding war between Texas and Virginia for the investment, which will add a new warehouse facility, production equipment and some 36 new jobs.
“At WhiteWave, we are focused on investing in our Mount Crawford facility in response to increased consumer demand for our Silk, Horizon Organic, International Delight and LAND O LAKES products,” said Jim Peacock, Vice President, Supply Chain at WhiteWave. “We are thrilled to continue to invest in our Mount Crawford plant with the support of state and local government officials, the community and our employees.”
