Flowers Foods to Expand Tasty Bakery In Oxford, PA
Flowers Foods (NYSE: FLO) today announced plans to expand the production facility of its subsidiary in Oxford, Pa., and add a new bread production line that will help the company provide fresh bread to its growing market in Pennsylvania. The company's decision to invest approximately $31 million in the project over the next two years is based on the expectation that the project will receive economic support and assistance from the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. When completed in 2013, the new bread production line will add approximately 77 jobs at the Oxford bakery. Flowers also will add a bun production line to the bakery in the future to meet market demand at an additional cost of approximately $18 million.
