Kraft Foods is upgrading its Delaware Kool-Aid factory

Kraft Foods is to invest US$10m in packaging equipment at its Kool-Aid factory in Delaware.

The company will install three high-speed filler packaging lines for the powdered soft drink and overhaul a mixer to provide raw materials and powder mix for the new lines, a company spokesperson told just-drinks yesterday (3 July). Kraft will relocate production from its Ecatepec, Mexico plant to the Dover factory, creating 29 full-time jobs, the spokesperson said.

The company also produces Country Time and Crystal Light soft drink mixes at the site, according to a statement from the Delaware Economic Development Office.

The office handed a $456,000 grant to Kraft to support the packaging refit, it announced last week.
