Global food products manufacturer and distributor Kraft Heinz announced a planned $25 million expansion of its plant in Garland, TX. With help from the Texas Enterprise Zone program, the company will upgrade and renovate its 266,000-square-foot plant at 2340 Forest Lane, adding 250 new jobs to its current workforce of 843. The 50-acre site is also in a federally- designated Opportunity Zone.
The local operation represents the company’s largest manufacturer of Lunchables, Oscar Meyer Naturals, Kraft barbecue sauce and Velveeta Skillets.
“For decades, Kraft Heinz Food Company has been an important and highly-valued corporate stakeholder in Garland, and we are extremely excited to assist them with this latest expansion of operations in our community,” said David Gwin, Garland’s Director of Economic Development. “We look forward to many more years of successful partnership between Kraft Heinz and the community.”
